Making the crux moves on Tumbler, 5.11a

Description 

Easy climbing gains the first bolt on the lip of an overlap.

Climb directly above this past two more bolts until a steep wall below the overlap is reached.

The moves up the wall to the overhang are really good.

Once the overhang is reached traverse right and then make an airy rock over move, to gain good holds above. Make a couple of moves straight up and then traverse back left, shortly before the anchors.

Location 

2nd bolted line from the left.

Protection 

10 bolts, Rappel Bolt and Chain anchor

I think this would be a tough onsite for the grade (I hung). The moves aren't terribly hard but the micro-routefinding is baffling.

I agree it's a great route because it isn't a straight up. The weakest line goes easily enough at the grade, but the trick is finding it...

The route feels forced by bolt placement. While I climbed up to the roof, left of the bolt line, then traversed right ~8' and went up, I believe this sequence is forced by bolt placement. After climbing this way, I subsequently discovered it is easier to climb up to the roof on the right, but once you're at the roof, you have to traverse left to clip the bolt, then back right. The bolt placement makes you take a detour and interferes with a direct line.
