Description 

This is on Tanner Dome. It consists of one pitch of steep, well-featured, face climbing. Although it's supposed to be easier, I thought this route was harder than the two 5.9 routes in the trees (Amp Left and Amp Right). The crux is in the middle of the route where it is steep and it requires good foot work, without much for hands in a couple of places. It is a fun route.

Location 

I highly recommend Stewart Green's "Rock Climbing Colorado, 2nd edition" guidebook for a great description of the routes in the Tanner Dome area and throughout Colorado!

On Tanner Dome, this is the second route from the left on top of the boulders -- sandwiched between "Rightist" to the left and "Zing" just to the right.

Protection 

This is a sport climb -- it takes about 10 quickdraws to a two-bolt anchor.

I also thought this was harder than Amp Left. Lots of crimpy ledges and small foot holds. The crux involves really trusting one of those tiny foot holds and just going for it.
