Scramble up to high bolt. Climb up to third bolt passing sketchy block on your left. When we attempted to trundle the sketchy block it wasn't budging. Just the same leave it alone. From last bolt finish up slightly right to undercling then tiny finger/layback seam that top out at jug and anchors.
There is a crack/corner far to the right that has lots of chossy stuff (stay near bolt line) - belayer beware.

The route is pumpy and sequential

Thought this route was really good. Would be more stars if it didnt have a ramp at the bottom or had a little more climbing. I would say its a little more difficult than 10b but its really beta dependent. Not to give away too much, but there is a great deep drop knee in the middle that makes things very easy. Definitely get on it if 10/11 is in your range!
