bouldery move between bolts one and two spanks a LOT of climbers on this quality route.

...and used to spank even more before the bottom bolt was added, well after the first ascent. To do this in original style, boulder all the way to the second bolt before you clip.

Like the book says, bouldery start then just fun, fun jugs to the top. Fun moves over the lip to the anchors.

I loved the beginning moves, they were pretty sequential for me. Fell off a few times in the first moves. I will third that the top is a bit tricky.

If you ran into the start in the middle, this would probably be a 5.11-. Those initial moves wanted to spit me off in a barn door kinda way, but careful footwork and a little burl will see you through. Then, just make some reaches and you'll be through it. This was a quality climb for the area.

Definitely sequential to get passed the first bolt. Bomber hold by the second bolt. Stays interesting throughout with a little pump at the end. Quality.
