Description 

Climb up following bolts. In the middle of the route is a thin seam. Pull through this blank section which is quite thoughtful and very techy to a thank goodness jug.
There are cold shut anchors. However, you may want to back them up.

Location 

Start up hill and right from previous routes about 15'

Protection 

Bolts and optional slings.
Also the shuts are rather old, so take slings to back up

It's short, but there is no filler on this one. I think it's one of the best routes at the crag. There are two fairly hard cruxes. It's also a pretty sporty route, but not dangerous provided you have an attentive belay.

There are days where I feel like this is 11c and others where it feels solid 11+.

I've taken to calling it Ruby Red Jr. as it is similar in difficulty and stlye to Ruby Red Slippers.
