This is one of the steepest routes on the Pass! A HARD boulder problem start with a series of tension-y slaps from sloper to sloper, with a crimp or two thrown in, past the first 3 bolts finally gets you to a good jug shake below bolt 4. Move up into the alcove to another good rest and milk it for as long as possible, because the final roof and headwall is packed full of big pulls and dynamic moves to a final heartbreaking redpoint crux!
This route stays with you from beginning to end and the long hump up here is worth it just to do this route if nothing else. It is recommended to stick clip the first bolt.
It is right in the middle of Hurricane Wall, just to the left of Foreplay. Start under a roof with the first 2 bolts close together.
7 bolts, bolt anchor.

Hard as Hell. I want to see somebody do it in a way that makes it look 12b/c.

Just got on this today, and I have to agree with Phil: super hard, bouldery crux through the first 3 bolts that felt V6ish to me. Maybe I was doing it wrong? It's not over after that either; the steep headwall above has big moves and is pumpy!
