To me, the crux on this was the first 10'. There is a good layback crack to the right where the holds are not really jugs in the crux area.

I did this route again, and the crux is certainly the first two bolts. It is a good route, and the steep part is over quickly.

No way this is the same grade as Gooey Kablooie.
