After some asking around we were able to track down the FA party and learn more about the route. The FA party used Full Contact Origami as a training ground for their big wall party skills in preparation for routes in Zion.
With the blessing of Micheal we added one bolt to the traverse on pitch 3 and beefed up all the belays to 2 bolts.
P1 5.11 PG-13 Mantle easy ledges into the corner. Pull up the thin flake and layback up to the ledge with a lone bolt. Continue up the flare as it morphs into a tips corner. Belay on a jug stance.
P2 5.11- PG-13 Step right and gingerly work up to a blocky alcove. Continue up and pull onto the face with rad twin cracks. Belay on cozy bush ledge.
P3 5.11 PG-13 Climb up and left off the ledge on good patina holds to a thin seam. Gain a stance and traverse left (bolt) and down! to another stance. Climb into the crack and enjoy great sequences on clean rock to a stance with a old bolt. Another great boulder problem gains a ledge on the right.
P4 5.10+ PG-13 Climb straight up hand crack then left on blocky jugs into the crack. Broken rock humping leads to a right trending flake. Commit up the flake and punch it to another hand crack. Belay below roof on small stance.
P5 5.12- PG-13 Blast the rifle roof and squirm through a slot. Gain the steep hand and finger crack, fighting the pump until the angle rolls over, clip a lone bolt and quest up to the belay 20 feet higher. From here the original route traverses right to lower angle terrain
P6 5.11+ PG-13 Climb up and left on the ramp past two bolts. Climb straight up on massive jugs to gain a horizontal with gear and a slab above.. Climb the slab past a bolt to a mini roof (gear) move left to a seam with a tiny cam. Gain the ledge stance and move 15' right to a bolt. Climb up pumpy jugs and non-jugs past 4 more bolts, finishing with a traverse 10' right and enjoy an amazing belay seat.
