Description 

This longish route consists of blocky/edgy climbing up to a difficult crux boulder problem at the third or fourth bolt. Afterwards the climb enters a dihedral with a smooth whitish face on the left. Stemming is challenging here but often rewards the climber with a decent rest. Generally features on the right are used to gain upward progress. The second crux lies near the top of the dihedral where a reachy move to a sloping ramp will spit many off of the rock. From here it's another 5 or 10 easy feet to the anchors.

Location 

This is the first line of bolts to the right of Fueled By Slander. It climbs a thin overlap and then enters a white dihedral above.

Protection 

10 bolts to Rap Rings

I put this as 5.12a despite being rated 5.12b in the old guidebook. It's a compromise grade since I felt that the route was only 5.11d with the correct beta. Anyway, I couldn't justify posting it at 5.12b. It's a great route though, and my second favorite in the Slander Sector next to it's neighbor.
