Travis turning on the afterburners toward the top ...
Starts between Tits Up and Muscle Beach. First bolt is quite high, so stick clipping the first bolt is wise (requires a long stick). The climb opens with a punchy duo of pockety and crimpy boulder problems up to very welcome deep pockets as it veers up and left to cross Muscle Beach.
After a good and nearly no-hands rest, it accelerates up and slightly left through a thought provoking face with decent edges and pockets (once you find them).
The afterburning forearms kick in as you reach the break that makes you think you may actually get a rest. Not so lucky, as the final section leads you through a series of delightful pinches, sidepulls, underclings, and pockets to reach the anchors.
Great sustained route in the tradition of Tits Up. Possibly less cruxy and more sustained.
Starts between Tits Up and Muscle Beach.
9 bolts to chain anchors.

Might want a stick clip for this one. That or climb Muscle Beach and equip this on the way down. Pretty high first bolt with some non-trivial climbing to reach it.
