Oasis' Upper Pitches
The third pitch (8) breaks right and traverses (@ about "2 o'clock") past a small right facing corner, a bolt and then up to the groove (the first obvious weakness right of oasis' overhangs).
Pitch 4 (11-) launches up the sustained groove past approximately 6 bolts to the the belay
Pitch 5 (10+) jogs left 5' and then back right following the bolts back into the overhanging groove and up to the belay.

Onsight. We found these pitches very difficult for the grade posted. After the traverse, the next pitch had a short section of 11a bolted face to a few natural protection features to a much harder short overhang/overlap. After this was runout water groove climbing with marginal gear. The third pitch traversed a bit left, and then back right over 10ish ground. above was another much more difficult overlap with a highstep undercling move. After this, more runout slab.
I thought this was a fantastic finish to an already good route.
