Description 

Kosher Critter is a good short line that's not climbed much. It has a very challenging start(10d) which makes the rest of the route feel easy (9ish).

Crux is pulling the initial moves up to the bolt (and clipping it). A reach gets you into a fun varied diagonal crack.

Location 

Right most route on Critter Wall - to the left of the Traffic Jam notch. See bolt on face.

If memory serves me right, the bolted section below the start is the direct start.

Protection 

You can nest, directional and equalize a couple of pieces at the base of the route, placing all at your feet from the small ledge you start on. Gear would only keep you from swinging into Old Man's corner. Once the bolt is clipped, the rest has good pro to the top of Critter Wall.
