Description 

Begin with easy climbing past the first two bolts to a sheared off column that forms a mini roof and marks the start of the crux. Clip the third draw and pull through the crux using gastons and sidepulls. It is a bit of a distance to the fourth clip, but by the time you are up a ways from the third clip, you are on much easier climbing and you should have no problem. At this point, climb up and slightly left before heading up and right for the final long section of fun 5.10/5.11 climbing.

Location 

Immediately to the right of Mr. Microphone (which is also the start of the Warmup route) are two routes that start right next to each other and begin on two separate short, sheared off columns; Divine is the left route of these two routes.

Protection 

Usually all fixed draws except for bolts one, two, and four. Lower off.

This route is sick, technical slab-esque footwork at the crux followed by smooth, flowing Gold Wall style easier climbing to the top. Beautiful. It seemed longer than 70 feet, probably more like 90?

Quite soft for 5.12a, I think 5.11d would be fair.
