Description 

Another quality route that sees a lot less traffic than it's neighbors at the popular Banana Belt even though it's only a short walk away. While the route was set up as a 2 pitch climb, doing it in one if you have a 70 seems like the way to go. The first pitch is just a short chossy approach to the real climbing above. Be careful after the ledge at the first couple of bolts and hope for an attentive belayer as to not hit the ledge if you fall(not the place for the soft catch belay). From there enjoy the well protected and fairly continuous climbing up one positive hold after the next.

Location 

This route is just left of Brothers in Arms

Protection 

14 or so bolts to a 2 bolt chain anchor with binners
