Cruising the crux boulder problem Claim Jumper (5....

Description 

Climb the right facing flake for a couple of moves to gain a horizontal ledge and move right here to the 2nd bolt. Continue zig zagging up the slab on 5.11-ish climbing, staying mostly on the right side of the bolts. At the 5th bolt, move left and climb up into the overhanging dihedral. Do a difficult move (V5ish) to the lip from a good hold on the right and climb to a rest at the 8th bolt. Continue up right from here with some difficulty at the next 2 bolts to the shared anchor with In Bane

Location 

First route right of Bane/In Bane. About 20' right of those routes and left of New Beginnings and the project route. Shiny Fixe hangers, not the dark mad rock ones.

Protection 

10 bolts to the shared anchor with a lowering biner

The beginning slab on this route is still a bit flakey and dirty making for less than 4 star climbing. Hopefully as it sees more traffic this will become a must do route. The upper climbing from the overhanging dihedral to the chains is on exceptional rock. As the start cleans up this route could certainly become a 4 star climb like New Beginning to the right!
