Description 

This route starts out moderate but increases in difficulty really quick. The meat of the climbing heads up a leftward slanting seam that provides holds about as well as it provides gear. There's a reason it's bolted. Old school 11a.

Location 

Up on the hill. Head up from the base of The Rift/Mighty Monter/Vawter's Dihedral.

Protection 

2 Bolts. You wouldn't want to fall in the wrong place on this route. For mortals we can toprope (bolts) it without too much difficulty by scrambling up left of the route. There are a couple of potential gear options for the lead but I have never paid them much attention on TR.

A distinct crux just above the first bolt, which took me a few tries to figure out the sequence. The upper section is just a bit easier. Seems like it would be a heady lead, particularly as an onsight.
