Description 

This route is immediately left of the big left-facing corner.

A burly lieback up the edge of the crack/groove leads to a crux move off an undercling. Then some more strenuous climbing along the arching crack. The grade assumes that the wall to the right is off. If you stem, the route is probably somewhere in the 5.11 range.

You can also toprope this route by soloing the easy 5th class chimney in the corner.

Protection 

5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap.

Sustained and bouldery for the grade. Way harder than Atomic Gecko.

The climbing is fun enough however the bolting and location make this route suck. You would come very close to hitting the corning of the opposing wall if you fall on lead. As a matter of fact some foreign guy asked me to finish it for them because he fell and hit the corner.
