The hardest route at the Parking Lot Wall. It happens to be much better and more interesting than it looks.A series of sequency problems, supper crimpy in parts with good holds between.
Start on the ledge on the far right side of the cliff just right of Espresso (5.10d). Clip the first bolt from the comfortable ledge and head up an left out over the drop off. A few more crimpy left trending moves and then you head straight up past crimps underclings and even a few jugs thrown in there.
I didn't think the route looked good, so I waited years to do it. Now I highly recommend it.
From the ledge on the far right side of the crag, move to the left side of the ledge clip the first bolt from there.
5 bolts to quick clips.

This now has six bolts including the one you clip from the ground that can double as a belayers bolt with a long enough sling. Super fun and crimpy :)

Smitty has a good eye for lines. You can usually count on them being at least "good". -very strong 2 stars from me for this one, would be 3 but I try to be conservative with them.

This is a fantastic line with some really great movement. Never had to wait in line for this thing either. :) Thanks Chris!
