start on "Over The Top". Above the block take the left bolt line. The technical crux is at the traverse to the vertical seam. Above that is sustained overhanging big holds.

15 bolts, you need a 70 meter rope.

I'm a little confused by what's going on with this route. Off of the big ledge, halfway up there appear to be two mini variations of this route, both leading to the same overhanging face after 2 or 3 bolts.
I did the left "variation." The second bolt off the big ledge is very poorly placed and difficult to clip. Definite ledge fall potential here. Why not put it 3 feet lower and clip off the big jug? Also thought this thing was pretty loose, with one key hold at the crux flexing in my hand.

Good and fun pitch. Still cleaning up a bit, but no big deal. Might as well get on it since you'll be waiting in line for FCTM anyway. The bolting job is adequate.
