Description 

Start by scrambling up to a ledge and climb the crack system to reach the first overhang. Pull the overhang and work up a flake to reach the next overhang. Traverse left under the overhang to reach a flared flake, pull up and gain a stance (crux). From here, follow positive holds all the way to the top to reach the final overhang. At the final overhang, move a bit left and climb straight up to reach a large protruding block and make the final clip. Figure out a way to get in position to clip the anchors (redpoint crux). Long runners on the anchors make this an easier send. You can also make the moves in the final overhang a bit easier by traversing way left and using great holds to reach the protruding block at the last bolt (this variation puts you in a bad fall position).

Location 

This route is located on the tiger striped wall just to the left of Scenic Adult, 5.11c.

Protection 

9 bolts, shuts.

Felt easy for the grade - I'm not a strong 11 climber at all and I cruised almost all of it until the anchors.

Getting to a clipping hold for the anchors is arguably the hardest move on this climb. There are also quite a few ways to bypass some of the harder movement lower on the route - the closer to the bolt line you stick, the harder the climbing is. Mid 5.11 is pretty fair, but definitely feels easier than other more sustained routes of the grade due to the good rests throughout.

Love this route. The traverse at the bottom can be challenging then the roof at the top and difficult clipping stance for the anchors make this fun and fairly hard.
