Mike Bankoff cruisin'.

Description 

A steep boulder start builds the pump to a descent rest at a jug. Pull the crux stepping up to a bolted finger crack. Smear and jam your way to the anchor. Pumpy, sustained, and very technical. Awesome!

Location 

This is located about 75 feet right of Suspender Man just left of the prow Trolling for Holds.

Protection 

8 bolts? + anchor.

I thought this one felt at least as hard, probably harder than the 12a immediately to the left (go east old man). My first time I was reluctant to head to the finger crack and tried to stay more in line with the bolts - this felt like 5.way-out-of-my-pay-grade. Second time was a lot better but still felt pretty hard.

All 3 routes on this buttress could use some hardware love.

Excellent line that has apparently been retro'ed or rebolted. Not sure why the anchors weren't also replaced as they are pretty bad. Crux for me was when the feet disappear before gaining the crack. Pumpy start, techy middle, cool crack finish. Solid for the grade.
