Description 

This is the new variation for A Stirring of Air, and it avoids the hard start on that route. This variation makes for a great way to do this route and has become the most popular way to do A Stirring of Air. It is a great warmup.

Start on Brenna, clip the first bolt, and step right to a bolt in between Brenna and A Stirring of Air. Continue up and right before clipping the 4th bolt on A Stirring of Air and finish on that route.

This is a nice, true 5.10a unlike the hard, sort of sandbagged 5.10 that A Stirring of Air has long been.

Location 

Start on Brenna, just left of the large block at the base of the wall, underneath A Stirring of Air and Downdraft/Lever Action.

Protection 

7 bolts plus anchor.

The start of this route felt way harder than the other 11s at this crag. Did a hold pop off? I saw a fresh looking patch of rock below and left of the second bolt.

Maybe I was just missing something.

I think you may have been on one of the routes to the right, that starts from the top of the big boulder. Both are notoriously hard at the start. I was out there yesterday and looked at the start of Air Patrol, and nothing was changed.
