Just past the intricate, reachy crux on Short Atte...

Description 

Short Attention Span ascends the face just right of the right-facing corner which gains access to the three sport lines that start off the top of the huge block. A few moves off of a good mono (no really, it's good!) gains a stance to clip the first bolt. It wouldn't be pretty to fall before this first clip. The technical crux comes at the third bolt with a few thin moves sideways, and then a second, height-dependant crux at the fourth bolt. From here, it's smooth sailing on 5.10 moves to the top. The anchors are up right of the last bolt. This line makes a good warm up for the other, more demanding routes on this wall.

Protection 

Six bolts to a two bolt anchor with rap rings.

While it's really the only "warm up route" for the other sport routes, it's tough because of the crimpy nature.
