Description 

Start a bit downhill to the right of Pink Panther/Mr. Pinkeyes. Wander up and right on small, incut edges, then trend up and left on some larger features. A tricky sequence gets you up under a small undercling roof which is sort of strenuous due to a lack of footholds. Above the roof is a pretty good rest, followed by devious climbing on a series of sidepull flakes. The route almost joins Mr. Pinkeyes, then splits off to the right on a series of edges to the anchor.

Continuously challenging. With perfect beta the roof is probably the crux because it gets a bit pumpy there, but there are a bunch of moves on the route that can feel really hard if you don't use the right sequence. Great climb, I like it more than Drive By Shooting.

Protection 

Bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap.
