Description 

There are a few distinct cruxes on this one with mellow climbing in between. This climb is very featured with awesome edges, slots, flakes, and even some polished slab thrown in for good measure.

Location 

This is the leftmost route on the Checkerboard. It ascends a water streak through many different features. The easiest way to find this one is to look for a bolted lined that starts in opposing cracks right off the ground. Queen of Kings is the route to the right of this marker.

Protection 

11 bolts + anchors

Use to anchor to the right when you top out! Anchors are vague at the top, a set of rap rings to the right and rap rings to the left. The route wanders a bit and it's tough to see from the top which set will keep you in line with your draws for cleaning. The correct anchors, to the right, require some uncomfortably run out traversing on slab to reach. Otherwise awesome route. The early under cling crux requires a bit of commitment as the holds above it are hidden.
