Description 

This is a short but very good route that will challenge you with crimpers, side-pulls, a hand-jam, and then endurance slopers as you pull the bulge at the top.
The climb is pretty bouldery right off the deck but well-protected with closely spaced bolts.

Location 

At the right end of Ripple Tower. The 1st 2 bolts are shared with the 11b

Protection 

7 draws
