Description 

Good bouldery and sustained route. Positive and crimpy at the bottom, juggy and overhanging at the top. The first two clips could be scary for those breaking into the grade.

Location 

This is the right most route on the wall.

Protection 

All bolts. 6 draws plus 2 for the anchor.

This line is sick! Relentless climbing with a sequential crux and a big throw. Unfortunately, it seeps pretty badly and can be unclimbable for quite a while after rain.

A while means longer than a week apparently...
Bring a brush.

I popped in a knee bar rest near the second bolt to fully de-pump. The crux section is from bolt #3-5, but the clip at #5 is off a big jug, so keep that in mind when you crimp past #4...go fast, jugs await!
