This route is immediately to the left of Anything But The Fast Lane. I believe the crux is just getting started on the route. Right off the deck you move through a bulge/roof. There is a great hand jam if you can reach it. The start is easier if you are taller. Pull through the roof and climb up and left past horizontal cracks. The bottom of the route takes gear and the upper half of the route has 3 bolts to a two bolt anchor. This route finishes and the same anchors as Anything But The Fast Lane.


This is immediately to the left of the route Anything But The Fast Lane.


Bring small to medium cams up to #2 Camalot and quickdraws for the bolts. You can get off with a 60m.

Agree -- the crux is definitely the overhanging start. Once past the start the route can be protected fine with cams until reaching the first of the three bolts about halfway up.

I think there's a little more 5.9 midway through the bolts, a couple delicate face moves on tiny holds.

Thin slab was the crux for me, not the overhung start. I think it just depends on your strengths/weaknesses. Worthwhile route, well protected.
