The crux comes about 20ft. off the deck and is well protected via a bolt. This is a pretty stiff crux for a 5.9, but this is what squeezing the lemmon calls it. At the last "bulge" before the finishing slab one can go left and probably get pro or stick with the line and go for the 5.8R slab. Moving way right here is wild and fun!


This route is right of rabbit tracks about 10ft. Look for the lone bolt.


One bolt at the crux and the rest is all gear with chains at the top (shared with rabbit tracks)

This line can be safely led without the bolt. There's small but good gear at your feet when you can reach the bolt, and great gear about a foot above the bolt. I understand the reason for the bolt - make sure you're solid at the grade before trying this on gear only, as the placements at the crux are not trivial.
