Did this 6/07. Very interesting route with a variety of moves on it. Starts same spot as the farce. you climb up to a leeper + buttonhead that actually protects a delicate move. Nothing else between you and the ground, so take care.

The roof crux is pretty physical, but takes awesome gear, so plug it quick and fire it.

Up above is easier climbing, but crack is wide/flarey and gear isn't great...

Also, I took a #3 camalot and placed it, and probably could have placed another. 4 bolts on the climb, 2 are good modern bolts, one is the leeper/buttonhead one, and there's one more old bolt.

The two old bolts have been removed and replaced with modern 3/8" bolts.

Despite its uninspiring appearance from the ground, this route was actually really fun. A few delicate moves protected by 2 bolts down low (on the slab) take you up a flared hand crack (can supplement second bolt with a high #2) to an interesting flared pod (and another bolt). Lieback the edge of the pod, clip another bolt, grab the mini-jug to the left, place a .4 or a .5 in the roof crack (or not), then throw for the perfect hand jams over the roof and cruise up the easy 5th class another 60ft to a natural belay (a few pieces of gear can be placed on your way up the crack). Top out and walk down (or keep going up).

All bolts are bomber.
