This route starts right of "Indecent Exposure" and connects to "Out of Hangars" and ends at the anchors above "Knee Surgery." The runout section is on easy (5.7/5.8) terrain above bolt 5 of "Out of Hangars." You can just barely TR this from the ground by using a directional on bolt 5 of "Out of Hangars." Be sure to have your belayer tie in to the end of the rope! Note: this climb is height-dependent (especially the opening move), Shorter climbers may grade it harder.


Right of Indecent Exposure.


6 bolts, small gear, and one 4" cam for the big pocket above the first bolt.

Fabulous climb! Felt like 5.10a to me but my shorter partners thought the reachy move above the first bolt was much harder (I'm 5'10"). Here is a video of the climb:
