The climbing gets harder the higher you ascend. First bolt is a bit high and tricky to get to, but not terrible.
Starts just left of Atomic Cafe (right arching 5.8 crack). Follows the bolted line under a small roof and then over the roof onto the edging / crimping face and pretty much straight up.
Quickdraws. Two bolt anchor on main wall with FIXE ring anchors (good). Can't reach these bolts from the top unless you rap down to them. Hanging belay. This route does not top out.

Great climb. I found the start to be a strenous move, maybe I was attacking it wrong. From the ground the route looks tough, but once you clear the 2nd bolt, or the undercling section, it is easy climbing til the crux move(last move before chains) but the move is well protected.
