Trying hard to not whip off the crux on the first ...

Description 

Scramble to the first bolt and then work your way up and right on the diagonal feature to the second bolt.

Thin, technical slab climbing will see you through the crux and up to a welcome rest just past the third bolt.

Cruise up past three more bolts, and then work your way through another tricky section right and up, past the seventh bolt.

Climb past two additional bolts and join Blue Steel at its tenth bolt. Follow that line on the fun upper slab to the anchor.

Location 

Between Magnum and Blue Steel, look for the line of bolts starting off the ledge. Either traverse the ledge from the start of Blue Steel, or climb up from directly below on easy terrain.

Lower off with a 70m rope, but be careful of the end. Swing right as you lower so you don't run out of rope!

Protection 

14 Bolts (Last 5 shared with Blue Steel), Mussy Hook Anchor.

If you're a technical slab master, this route may feel easier than 11a. If you're used to steep jug hauls, it may feel harder. FWIW, I find the moves more difficult than the crux on Gasoline Fight. YMMV.

Getting to the bolt after committing to the crux keeps your attention. Fun upper crux but easier. Well done!

Did blue steel and the swung over to top rope this route. Really good stuff! Got a few clean goes at the lower crux and then ran it to the anchors. Up top is engaging too. Will be back to lead it.
