Not sure how this route avoided being added yet. Route breaks down to a series of boulder problems with marginal rests scattered about. The first crux is down low, using small incuts to traverse hard left to a jug (reachy). Subsequent boulder problems are easier, but the ever worsening pump quickly becomes an issue. I found the top to be a bit contrived because of the bolting; forcing you over to the right, which is easy, but seemed a bit goofy considering how obvious it is to mantel into the giant hueco/ledge off to the left. Up to you how to do it I suppose. Classic nonetheless. More info here


First bolted route to the right of Random Percision, there's usually a insitu sling up high to help out with-in my opinion- the crummy bolting job.
