Great climbing that never seems to quit. Soft for the grade, Boltergeist makes a terrific choice for a leader's first 10b.
Thin moves at the start make stick clipping a prudent choice. Climb on good edges and ledges past several bolts and a bulge to a nice rest ledge. Continue up the face to more purely slabby climbing at the finish.
Starts on the face just right of Shock and Awe.
13 bolts, bolted anchors.

Great climb up until right before the top. Its got a really slabby start, big jugs, a weird parallel double hand crack near a bolt thats interesting, just a lot of fun. Then it kind of just slopes off to a whimpering finish. Still gave it 4 stars though, just because, it felt pretty awesome.

Best route in the area. Long, moderate, and fun!

Great route. Arguably, the crux is before the first bolt, especially if the start is not dry. Then again, there are several more 5.10 moves sprinkled throughout this long climb.

Not 120', more like 100'-105'--we climbed this with a 60m rope and had about 6' or so to spare after lowering.
Agree with Mark above, though. I really felt it should've probably ended at the final bolt--though the view wouldn't be quite as nice.
