BETA PHOTO: The crux overhang, which is the last of three that...

Description 

Climb through three overhangs. There are a couple holds that are tough to see until committed. Once on the slab at roughly mid route do not trend left, stay basically straight. (This bolt is impossible to see from below) Now the route crosses Devo at a silver bolt and climbs through steep juggy terrain(follow the black bolts)to the anchors.

Location 

Begins a few feet right of Devo. This route has black bolt hangers.

I'd give this one at least one more star than what Lawyer/Haas have on the website. The three bulges are tough enough for the grade, but the work isn't over until you clip the anchor. Lots of climbing: 13 bolts, a couple of which are best clipped with 2ft slings.

I'll add an "AMEN" to the above comment and grade....and I just 'fooled around' on the headwall part (where Diva and Devo cross). The Diva (black bolts) climbing had a pretty thin move; i.e. not just "jug away".

The bottom is pretty loose. I was pretty worried about dropping a block onto my belayer. The falls at almost all of the bottom 5 bolts seem pretty bad (ankle breakers) if you take them, but thankfully the climbing is easier down low.

The top is much cleaner and better.
