Torque Blow.

Description 

This is a fantastic, bolted, boulder problem. Enjoy 25 feet of overhanging climbing on sharp crimps to a jug that gains the slab. Save some gas for the last few moves leading to the jug. Another 15 feet of casual climbing gets you to the shared anchors for Top Soil. Incidentally, the shared anchors allow for easy access to try this route on top rope.

Location 

On Haus Rock, this is on the right side of the south face, just left of the dihedral.

Protection 

5 bolts, fixed biners on the shared anchors of Top Soil.

Great route! It is short but has great movement from bolt to bolt and even a final hard sequence before gaining the good holds to the right. Felt a smidge harder than most 13a's because of that last sequence moving up and right past the 4th bolt. I recommend stick clipping the 2nd bolt.
