Description 

A long, sustained route with fun movements on less than clean rock. Didn't have any distinct crux that stood out to me. Climbing goes slowly trying to find secure holds with no dirt or moss. By the top I was pretty worn out considering it's only rated 5.7 (which I agree with). The end of the climb traverses slightly to the left and ends at the halfway point between this and The Lowe Route.

Location 

It's the 7th bolted line starting from the left side of Mammoth Wall.

Protection 

11 bolts in all. The climb ends at the 11th bolt, and there are no anchors or chains, just the one bolt.
