Description 

The start was difficult, but the route is continuous. Holds appear after the first few bolts. Fun slab climbing. Nice route. Marty gives this route two stars.

I only climbed (most of)the first pitch, so I suspect that I will have to update this with additional info later! We set up a top rope using the anchors above "From dimples to pimples".

Location 

Roughly in the center of King Dome proper.

Protection 

Bolted; 9 bolts to a two shut (bomber) anchor.
