Description 

This route shares a start with Tesseract but heads sharply up and right. Climb on large holds to the last bolt where you can figure out how you want to get to the anchors which are directly to the right - it's tough to get over there!

This is the last route that Kipp Trummel publicly bolted at the Red - thanks for everything.

Location 

Shares a start with "Tesseract" but heads to the right.

Protection 

7 bolts to anchor.
The last bolt is a glue-in bolt with a permadraw on it - there is also a 5-piece mechanical bolt; use the glue-in.
You can back clean the first draw at the start of the climb to reduce rope drag, but it's not really necessary.

Great route except for the weird contrived traverse above the last bolt
