Description 

This route climbs a left angling line on the far left side of Pocket Rocks.
You start a little to the left of the first bolt, you can avoid the wall to your left, but it doesn't up the grade of the route.
Pretty good pockets on a slightly overhanging rock lead to a steeper overhang thru quite a sequential series of big moves on OK pockets and flat edges.
If you fall right before the 4th bolt, which is a real possibility, it could be a pretty sweet fall.
The top, which looks burly from the ground, turns out to be fun and quite a bit easier than any of the climbing you have done so far.

Location 

Farthest left route at Pocket Rocks.

Protection 

5 bolts and anchors.

Crux is all mental if you let the fear of falling get to you. Good route.
