[Hide Comment] This route is actually the second from left (just to the right of Datura and to the left of Monkey Spank Mayhem). It also has 7 bolts I believe. I spent a lot of time working bad beta trying to incorporate the obvious three finger pocket while at the no hands rest just below the roof. But for me going right of the bolt line and reaching up right to a not so obvious two finger pocket sets you up well for the holds over the roof (probably even a knee bar is possible while reaching for them). Also at the fifth bolt there are two good pockets splitting the bolt line and the one on the left appears to always be wet! Then when you move from those 2 rest pockets there is a series of three 2 finger pockets (these also seem to always be kind of damp. What seemed to work well for me is to go left hand to the first of three pockets and then get my feet higher and reach big with my right hand for the jug just to left of the bolt (skipping the other wet pockets) and then clipping around my hand.
