The first step, nice and airy! Ignore my arm under...
From atop the exposed block clip the first bolt, check your pulse, step across the void and start climbing.
Uphill from Dancer / Jete on the face next to the southern edge of The Priest. A short scramble from the trail and an easy move puts you on top of the block and at the start of the route. The first bolt is easily clipped standing on the block.
Quickdraws. Two bolt anchor (shared with Catherine Finds An Edge). Can be climbed with a 50 meter rope but rap carefully!

This one is pretty easy but the rock is rather sharp. Not as exposed as Catherine (5.7) on the left. Plenty of hand/feet holds.

Nicely bolted on the airy start. Seems to be cleaning up nicely for a newer route, but I blew off a nubbin around the second bolt. Good route to jump on if others are crowded, but if you're solid at the grade as the only climbing that's 9ish is at the start.
