Less than vert start that gradually steepens. Some larger moves between bigger holds leads to a cruxy headwall. Match a super cool slopey pinch with both hands and throw high, on marginal feet, to pull the first bulge. Straightforward, but pumpy, finish on an overhanging face. The guidebook calls it a 11.b/c, but I think it's much softer than that. Only one really difficult move. Shares chains with Body by Jake. Once you unlock the sequence, it flows beautifully!!
