Description 

One of the 3 additions to the wall by Joe Kinder during the summer of 2013, this route requires a full granite ninja skill set. Climbing is on a slightly overhanging wall with rounded features - mostly sidepulls. Bouldery, but also sustained.

"This is probably one of my best routes that I have ever bolted and climbed. It has some of the craziest features like a massive tongue of granite that you climb like a tufa. As well as cruxes all the way to the anchor." - Joe Kinder

A nice article in Rock and Ice 227 describes in a lot of detail the controversy that this route stirred up, when a small juniper was cut down to make the initial moves off the deck safer.

Location 

First route just right of the large juniper. Middle of the wall.

Protection
