Scott sussing-out "Donor".

Description 

This is a wall classic. Smooth slightly overhanging and what looks like plated face.

A stick clip is advised due to the awkward and difficult start. Make the weird moves to gain the face above the bulge. Begin up the pocketed face with a difficult move. Then continue to the many pockets to the occasional thin crimp. Make a tough move through a few bulges to the easy finish under the capped roof. This route probably stays dry in a light rain.

Location 

This route is on the wall just left of Wal-Martification of trad and Family Traditions and two routes to the right of Darwin Loves You. A 60m will easily get you down.

Protection 

6 bolts to a two bolt anchor.

IMHO, it is a better route than Johnny. The climbing is more fun and consistent, and a lot less cruxy than its neighbor to the left.
