Description 

Start on blocks to the left of I Wish I Was Trad then up thin face working left to rest st the top of the small dihedral. Move back out right and up to first crux- dancing on sidepulls. Followed by a mediocre rest and a fun but burly roof pull (2nd crux). Work your way up and left to the bulge(standing rest). Keep it together as you work towards the arete on small, obscure holds and easily mixed up feet. Go around the corner to stand and clip the anchors.

ALTERNATE: Before the 2nd crux some people go hard left instead of pulling the roof, up the left side of the bulge. Easier moves but a big swing if you mess up. Knocks it down to 12-. To me, it looks obviously off route but do what please ya!

Location 

Furthest route to the left on Predator Wall next to I Wish I Was Trad before you go around the corner to the easier routes.

Protection 

8 Bolts. Ring anchors.

Following the line of weakness is the only way to climb this route...2 hand moves left of the bolt line and you're in jugs. 12a.
