Description 

The route starts just to the right of Archangel. Follow the red, vertical watermark up to a ledge and clip a hidden bolt. The first 20 feet or so is unprotected, but you can reach left and clip the first two bolts of Archangel if you want. Pull over the roof and angle a bit right and look for the few remaining bolt hangers. Work you way through the crazy, huge tubs.

Location 

Look for all the huge tubs in the middle of Messenger Wall. Start below and to the right of the tubs next to a tree on a ledge. Look for a red, vertical mark on the first 20 feet.

Protection 

5 bolts to 2 bolt anchor. A few small to medium cams may be useful.
