Pull onto a slab past a bolt and then head up the vertical face above past some fun moves to a crux over a slight bulge. Finish up with huge holds to anchors on the ledge above.

This is a fun route. On the lower bulge, spice it up by avoiding the huge rail - there are plenty of nice, smaller holds to the left, which make for an interesting traverse to the next bolt.

A little easier than "Shoot at Will". I like this route.

I'd say this route is 5.9 and quite good.

I just led it 30 minutes ago.

It is harder than Gold Bar 5.9 and Lady Luck 5.9.

I should probably do it again soon!
