Awesome tall route up the middle of the wall

Description 

This route is up there with the best 5.11s I’ve ever climbed. Long, enduro climbing on jugs with a cruxy roof down low make this one not to be missed in MFRP. Climb up smooth rock between ledges and good flakes to the big roof. Consider back-cleaning the first two or three quickdraws after you clipped above each one to make cleaning the route easier.
Pull the roof and enjoy straight-forward jug hauling forever. Or about 70 feet to be more precise. Super, super fun and worth the hike to the wall just for this route alone.

Location 

Towards the center of the main wall. The route is two routes left of the obvious right-trending, long “Hourglass Crack” trad route.

Protection 

10 bolts to chain anchors with biners. Three of the bolts have fixed cable/chain draws to facilitate cleaning. Definitely use these as the route is steep and the big roof low on the route makes cleaning difficult.
60m rope mandatory.

Absolutely fantastic. Best 11c I've been on in the red. Awesome, flowy movement on huge jugs that just go on forever.

60m rope is just enough for this route. Finished with ~1 meter to spare. Be sure to knot your ends, just in case.
