Description 

Hard-to-read moves through the initial roof lead toward a huge jug. Without the right sequence, the jug seems improbably far away. Clip the second bolt from the jug, side-pull your way to the third bolt (keeping your cool as a fall before clipping the third would be nasty), and finish on easier climbing.

Location 

Immediately right of Monsters Under My Monster's Bed

Protection 

5 bolts

As said above, this is a dangerous route, I don't usually bring a stick clip to Vantage but the first clip is scary as well as the 2nd and 3rd.

Two things about this one:
1) I don't think its as dangerous as advertised. The first two bolts are going to keep you off the ground doing those hard moves. The third one is definitely not great and there is shit to clip from. I still think an attentive belayer could keep you safe through this whole thing.

2) This is definitely harder than the 11a next door. The start moves to the jug are pretty unique and challenging to read.

This is a great climb with a short, tough section right off the bat.
