A dicey little slab move moving right past the first bolt gets things started. Once you pull onto the ramp work your way up to the steep headwall. Follow angling seams and cracks up and left to join the finish of Juckets and Bugs.
A great warm up option, not as crux as Juckets but more steep terrain.
You can lead this on marginal gear (and I did, as a gear lead it is R). Years ago, apparently Chris and Karl did this by walking around to the top of the slab and climbing just the upper headwall. I returned with Karl after having TR'd the line starting from the ground and bolted it. So, it is a "new" route but not a new route.
Starts on Juckets and bugs but immediately moves right, finishes just right of the previous route as well.
8 bolts to it own chain anchor.

This was a fun route! My friend and I were the dudes there when you were putting it up. I think you should keep the name.

Once above the slab and on the headwall the route is fantastic and would be a classic if it were twice as long.
