Description 

Late For the Gravy Train is a long, beautifully solid mixed moderate, that is sure to get your engines moving. Start up an off vertical featured crack, which will deposit you into a steep blocky section at mid height. Keep chugging to the first bolt up and left, and take a rest before the vertical head wall. The intended path off the ledge is to follow the bolts over open air to the right. A few small positive crimps leads you to the finishing jugs, and a final serving of satisfaction.

Location 

To the right of Frisk A Drag, look for distinct thin crack.

Protection 

Single set to 2", med/large wires, 3 bolts, runners, 2 bolt fixed biner anchor.

I found the section before the first bolt to be a bit tricky but i went straight up the corner, where it looks like most people move left.

Now that i see the description to stay right at the bolts...do that. I went straight up and it felt way harder than 5.9
