Description 

Climb up the obvious dish / alcove. Before you reach the top of the alcove, move up and left onto the face. Keep climbing until you reach the first bolt (sbout 35 feet). Pay attention as I climbed was so focused that I climbed past the first bolt and had to down climb a little to clip it. Move up and right to a pin and then up to a bolt and another pin. You may be able to get a TCU or stopper in higher on the route. The climbing is great on the route and relatively safe after you clip the first bolt. It's definatly a classic Needles route.

Protection 

4 fixed pieces.Possibly a tcu or stopper after the first bolt.

Not a good route. In addition to the sick runnout to the first bolt the route zig zags back and forth not so much in a contrived way but, more likely because whoever put it up couldn't go straight up and needed to get to the bigger holds. 'Trojan Condom-nation' to the right is a much cleaner, more asthetically pleasing route.

I actually think this climb embodies Needles climbing. Minimal protection, following the most climbable line...you can climb anything in the Needles if you have the guts!
