Description

Start in the red and black corner with good feet and good holds for 2 clips. When ready, move left to the face on reachy holds to C3. At C3, reach for the killer pocket out left and gain the good rest ledge. The hardest of two cruxes begins here and this first crux is possibly harder for the shorter climber. Grab pretty small edges and climb straight up this short 2 bolt face with tricky feet and reachy, sharp edges to a smallish ledge. Jog right to C7 then go straight up on great pumpy holds to the anchors.

Location

This is the first route encountered when going to the Fish Wall.

Protection

8 clips to chains.

I agree that the first crux is just above the 4th bolt (the rock is pretty sharp). I'm average height and had trouble committing to the thin moves just above the ledge. Once you pass this section, you climb some blocky, somewhat questionable rock to a nice rest. I stood here for awhile contemplating how to clip the final bolt (it was a bit high). Once you get through this section, it wasn't too bad getting to the anchors. I didn't really like the route, as I thought the rock was often questionable and the moves weren't that interesting.
