Route heads towards large flake near the top. Footwork is the key to this route.

This route is on the same wall as the routes listed under Serpent's Wall, to the right of Dead Cats. Not sure if the Dead Cats Annex is just another name for that wall, because there is a single wall with about 10ish routes with no obvious break that seems to get listed as either Serpents or Annex.

Some call this 5.7 and some 5.8. I think the difference is in how you get to the first two bolts. After that, I think it's no harder than 5.4.

I've seen a lot of people struggle with the start, which is probably the crux.
