Description 

Up the low-angle face using many horizontals for holds and gear, to a great stance below a bulge with a single bolt. Clip the bolt, and make a crimpy move to power over the bulge. Easier ground leads to a bolted anchor on a ledge. The move over the bulge is probably 5.10- and very well protected, while the rest of the route is in the 5.7/5.8 range.

Location 

The left-most route of the three on this wall. It starts directly below a scoop about 3' up, and about 20' left of the start of 18 Wheeler. There is a lone bolt high on this route you can use to orient yourself.

Protection 

Small gear the whole way up, plus 1 quickdraw. I used nothing larger than a BD 0.5, but plenty of pieces in the blue-yellow alien range.
