Fun slab route, also my favorite song by Massive attack. Are the FA's fans by chance? I used a purple tcu between the 2 and 3 bolt and a sling to wrap a solid bush towards the top. I remember walking by while cleaning the route, was on my way to work on the cracked egg

The 1st half was fun but turning the lip and entering the choss realm on the last bit was disappointing. I didn't place any gear or feel the need to on this one. Good warmup for the 11.

Excellent route that is super fun, though the slab section is a bit runout. If you're going to the Coffin this route is a must do on the way there.

Could use more traffic, chossy at top.

The first half of this route is technical slabbing.
The second half is a lot of fun.
Wise for the belayer to wear a helmet.
Found supplemental gear not needed. Slung the shrub at the end of the slab, otherwise, all bolts.
