Description 

This is a very worthy mixed line, though it could use a rebolting job. Start up a lichened, smooth face coming in from the right (uphill) with a few heady moves before the first bolt. There are big moves and weird sequences for the first three bolts. At a pretty good stance, you get some gear in, then bust up a bulge through some cool huecos, more gear, and one more bolt into a REALLY cool crux sequence. At the top, you move right into a shallow dihedral.

Location 

Just left of the 5.6 corner "Beech, Beeeech, Beeeeech!" and perpendicularly facing the obvious crack, Surge Complex.

Protection 

Four bolts, plus bolted anchors. Some supplemental gear is definitely needed; I used a couple .5 camalots and one blue tcu.
