|A rowdy and fun climb! The crux is steep and stellar! It's engaging climbing from start to finish.|

Classic line! Pitch 1 easy with maybe 1 move of 5.3 to 2 new bolts on a ledge. After that the climbing is awesome from start to finish with a burly crux about mid-way. You'd be crazy to not finish on the 2 bolt direct line. That's some really fun climbing to top it off!
Onsight rack: 1x .4-3 | 2x .5-2 | 4 slings | 4 quick-draws (save 2 for the bolts at the end).
2 glue in bolts on top of the sub summit.
FYI, you can rap from the bigger glue ins at the lip of the sub-summit(east side) to the ground with a 70m rope by heading straight down Powder Puff (towards the p1 belay). Even with a 60m you could make it back to the P1 anchors and do the final short rap to the group. It's a rope stretcher so knots are advised.
