Description

This route climbs up the center of the face and shares an anchor with Flamous (the climb to its right).

The first bolt is very high with unprotected 5.10 moves 10ft off the deck. Your options are:
-clip the first bolt of Impatience and then traverse right onto the route
-bring a bouldering pad and spotters
-just toprope the thing after leading Flamous

If you don't do any of the above the route gets an 'R' rating.

Protection

Bolts, about 4 of them.

The first bolt is seriously high and stout 5.10 face moves like the description says, but I will caution on clipping the first bolt of nearby routes. Where your foot is likely to blow you will deck even with a neighboring first bolt clipped. Other than that .. Really thin face moves that brings a whole new meaning to 'climb with your feet'.
