Start by busting out a few moves of 5.10 to a high first clip. A few more interesting moves on steep pockets leads to the second clip. From here, trend up and left past the next two bolts through moderate (5.6/5.7) terrain. It's a bit runout on this easier section, but an optional #4 Camalot and/or a sling around a bomber horn could be used to reduce the spice between bolts 3 and 4.
Once pulling past the 4th bolt and clipping the 5th, the terrain gets steep and sustained, with pumpy moves through crisp pocket features, crimps, and buckets. The crux is near the top between the 9th and 10th bolts. There are at least two sections on the route where one could follow right or left variations, as the multiple holds facilitate many options.
The "crux" is probably hanging on to the end and avoiding a cumulative flash pump. Being steep and pumpy and of moderate grade, it's a good way to warm-up and approach the West Overhang or Maiden Voyage. It might also serve as a nice warm-up for Hasta La Hueco.
