Hard to know what to do at the last bolt. Going direct over the bulge to the anchor seems much harder than 5.8. Bailing out to the easy terrain on the right feels like you're traversing onto Aviary and puts the last bolt in a weird place relative to where you're climbing. Maybe something broke on the direct?

The direct finish feels much harder than 5.8. I think stepping right after clipping the last bolt is the way to go. The climbing is still within arm's reach of the bolt line and feels at about 5.8. Sep 5, 2017

Great fun route. Don't know why it has a low star rating! Top is not harder than a 5.8 - pull the roof and look for great hand pockets on the buldge - its all there and more. The rest felt 5.7 and lower. Jun 5, 2018
