I don't think this one receives much attention, but it's stout little crux makes for a solid climb. Although it is quite short and shares a hold or two with Bloodline, it is surprisingly fun. The difficulties are very brief but fairly intense and consist of a couple bouldery moves followed by a balancy lean just above the first bolt. Fun route. Do it.

I love this route, usually just toproped it. But one day I hung a long draw on the second bolt (or maybe third?) so that the draw would be there when I arrived. I think there is groundfall potential getting to that second bolt, otherwise. Leading this route without the draws hanging is probably a bit sketchy. Then again, I worry too much...(You can lead Superstition, then lower down over the bolts on Bloodsucker)

Don't be perturbed by the groundfall comment. Took a few falls going for the clipping hold for the 2nd bolt and was completely safe :)

All old bolts replaced as of 4/5/15, thanks to ASCA and volunteers. Steel biners added to the anchor.
