This route is often TR'd after leading Ode To Bugg.
It has been led on gear but not sure if anyone has ever had a clean redpoint (Bill Saul?)
The gear is thin and very specific, but it is there. Very nice gymnastic route.
Start same as Ode then immediately trend left up flakes to a crux bulge. Above this is a cruxy twin finger crack section that leads to nice 5.10 climbing to the top.
