Description 

Surmounts 3 bulges using 3 different skill sets, and follows an obvious weakness of cracks and bulges

Location 

15 ft right of the gully.

Protection 

Good but difficult to find gear placements up to 2 inches. Can be TRed as well. Not recommended as a first gear lead at the grade.

this route was a very pleasant surprise. as a warning to leaders, though, this probably isn't a 3-star route ground-up. it's the movement of the climb that's really fun, but the gear's sketchy.

i climbed this again today and i changed my mind about the PG13 rating. it seems safe to me, you just have to look closely for the good gear.
