Description 

This route is difficult to star-rate. Thin and sequency off the ground, with powerful crimpy moves to a desperate second clip using miserable slopey crimps. From there, another bolt and a half of good V4-ish climbing, then pretty easy to the anchors. I'm giving it 3 stars because I got sucked in and worked the moves (it's basically 3 or 4 good bouldering sequences), but don't blame me if you hate it...

To find the climb, find Pretzel Logic and continue about 20 meters north, through the trees, past Motion Activated, around a right facing corner and into a dihedral. The climb going up the bulging face up the right side of the dihedral is the one you are looking for. Not on topo.

Protection 

4 bolts to anchors.
