Ben Snead absolutely annihilating the direct start...
Pre-clip the first bolt from the boulder, and then start from the ground just left of the starting holds for 'Hot Lava Lucy". Cool lock offs on small knobs for 20 feet connects back into "Cantalope Death". A spot is nice to stop a swing in the event of a fall near the start.

This is an okay route. I would recommend Hot Lava Lucy before this. A good route if your breaking into 5.12 climbing, since its basically a top rope.

The guidebook says to start from the trail, which I understood to be from the ledge since that's the trail. If it starting from lower, I'd say this thing is def harder than 12a. Would be nice if this had a lower first bolt, as is it's very unappealing to having to take the pendulum every time you come off. MAybe it's big moves on small holds, but feels like some holds might be missing.
