Climb "Flex Your Bazooka" to the top of the first tower. Then follow the right bolt line. Some 10a on the next part and the crux is above the 12th bolt.


Right Variation on "Flex Your Bazooka".


13 bolts. You need a 70m rope for this route.

on a technical level i don't think there's a move harder than 5.9 on this route. it is fairly sustained, with a nice break at the slab. more like 10a. really fun and long, a 70m will not reach the very bottom, but will make it to the shelves on the right of the route, put a knot in the end of your rope when you're belaying/lowering.

A 10a climber would probably have a hard time through a few of the difficult sections - there is more than one cruxy section. To me, it adds up to about 10b or 10c, just like it is rated. Overall, a good route.
