Start just left of Kate Moss on easier terrain, leading to a powerful bouldery section with some sloper-slapping.

Finish by pulling over a small ledge onto a few technical moves on slab to the anchors.

About 12 bolts

Great route! You really only have to pull on slopers if you miss out on better holds at the lower crux. The top section is a bit devious and clipping the anchor is kind of a crux in itself, especially if you're shorter. Despite its proximity to the 5.9 next door, the climb doesn't feel squeezed and is kind of a 'hidden gem'. Probably more like .12a or .12b. I think this one might have 12 bolts including the anchor (which may or may not have fixed lowering hardware), but bring 14 just in case.
