This fun line start off hard with a low crux past the second bolt and then eases to steep climbing on good holds - if you nail the crux it's all about hanging on for the ride.

Don't be confused by another line of bolts that branch off after the 2nd bolt, as they belong to another route - As the Jerks Fly (5.12a).

Classic route! Best route on the wall, and true to the grade.

Thank heavens the crux is bolts 2-3. After that its pretty good holds to test your endurance. The last 2 bolts are very cool with a huge undercling to crimps to finish. This has 2 somewhat decent rest jugs.

Awesome climb. pretty sustained. love the moves, love the holds, everything is great!!! try to squeeze out a few rests where you can, there's not really anywhere on this route that i would call an awesome rest.

This is tougher than second coming--more technical and sustained. There are some really cool sequences through the crux area. The big ledges are not as good as you'd like, many of the holds that look all chalked up are slopey and I agree there aren't many good rests. The finish on crimps is definitely exciting after pumping out on the steep section below.
