A great climb; similar to Pocket Puzzle and Pocket Party in style. Getting off the deck (first 2 bolts) is the crux. I stayed left at the beginning, which is easier, but may not have been in the spirit of the climb.
Immediately to the right of Pocket Puzzle. #37 on Marty Karabin's "Road Area" (9/2008) pocket guide. Look for the orange bolts.
9 bolts. Anchors.

This route is better than Pocket Puzzle. Thanks to Chris Bastek for giving me a guided tour of the ponds and putting me on this route. I did this one about 20 minutes after Pocket Puzzle both are great.

Yes, this is indeed better than Pocket Puzzle! Way more fun and actually thoughtful -- not that PP isn't that, it's just that this one is more than just a great workout.

This route is so fun! The crux I think it getting to the second bolt. The overhung part after the huge ledge is cruxy also but you have a great rest before it.
