Lucas,

I'm curious as to why you find it contrived? It sure seems like an independent line to me. Yeah it shares the start with On the Loose, but after that it's not as if you can use holds on neighboring routes.

It's a bit contrived because it shares the start with On the Loose, as well as the anchors with On the Loose. The line of least resistance to get to those anchors is to climb On the Loose. It's like we're going out of our way to take the harder route to the same place.
The climbing is superb however, can't wait to get on it again.

Fair enough. You know you can always add the direct start. However, I think it's harder than it is good. There is also a second pitch which you could link with the first and avoid traversing to the On the Loose anchor.

Though short, and maybe a bit contrived....this thing is a real beauty.
