Description 

The center route. Start the same as Wildest Dreams and but continue up the ramp to the left. The crux is a tricky sequence near the top that requires good balance moving between small holds.

Protection 

8 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap.

Rock around the anchor sounded hollow.

Fun climbing but I was a little scared rappelling off this one. I've never heard rock creak like that at the anchors.

Agree about the rock around the anchor--pretty scary. Also scary-sounding is the Wildest Dreams anchor.

Excellent, just like it's neighboring routes. Personally found this middle one the most heads up of the three.
