This route climbs the crystals and slabs through the bolts for about 90 feet. It is located to the right of a large detached flake / formation.

Linking this route into Pluto's Playground (the route just above the end anchors for make believe), makes for one of the best long moderate climbs in the area with about 170' of fun mix of slab and crystal pinching. About 16 draws are needed to link theses routes. A few extendable draws are highly recommended too.
