Description 

Four sticky feet would certainly help you on this steep route! Instead you will have to fire the long crux move and be efficient with gear spotting/placement as you pass through a smattering of jugs to reach the vertical face above. From here, angle towards a pillar below the right side of the looming roofs above. An airy traverse left through the overlaps deposits you at the anchors.

Location 

Once you have found the Swamp alcove, locate the wall with Bury The Bone on it. This route sits on the far right side of the same wall.

Protection 

A single bolt keeps you off the deck during the crux move. Otherwise, an emphasis on thin fingers, and a single rack up to fists. 2 bolt anchor with chains.

I got on this route two weeks ago with Dan and had no trouble with the crux lunge (I'm 6' 1"). Fun, juggy climbing after that for an enjoyable route - just to throw in my opinion.
