A steep start followed by some awkward mantles and balancy moves near the top give a varied route.
Start up the large broken crack until possible to move right and gain the sharp flake. Hang around, admire the rock engineering, then make a long reach up to the ledge.
Once on the large ledge it is possible to move left to clip the fourth bolt. After clipping the bolt you can continue to layback the flake on the left, or alternatively you can move back right and mantle awkwardly onto the next ledge.
After the 5th bolt continue up the steep wall passing a few interesting sections until the final ledge is reached.
Right side of the area, 5 feet right of Shockwave.
9 bolts, double ring anchors.

A worthwhile addition to the area with steeper climbing than initial appearances suggest. The somewhat height-dependent crux is passing the 2nd bolt as you lock-off and reach for a hidden hold, but a balancy section just below the top will keep you on your toes as you near the anchors.
