This is just to the right of Mariscos Lambada (5.8). It is pretty clean, but you may encounter some small loose pieces here and there, but it should be really solid after a few more ascents. This is the most sustained of the easier routes here. It has good movement with a definite crux. It is slightly height-dependent.
The route is between Mariscos Lambada and A Stiring of Air. Stick clip first bolt as the route is new and the landing not good. Head straight up through the alien face surf right clip bolt then move left up and over bulge.
7 bolts plus anchors. Fixed biners at anchors were left on 7/29.

Evidently, there is some discussion as to the placement of the bolt crux. Yes, I to had to climb through the crux move to clip the bolt but the fall was safe. However, let me know if any of you need to move the bolt down for you or add another and I will be happy to do so. It is a good route. Don't want to have anyone scared on it. Scott

Great route with a commitment crux move: harder for short people. Do Brenna!!

Nice route on good stone. Would be much improved by moving the crux bolt down 18" or so, so that it could be clipped before doing the crux move rather than after.

Great route. Fun slab climbing into a rest into a fun slopy bulge to finish. I don't know if the bolting has been changed but I climbed it in late 8/09 and thought it went well, but I do climb on Independence Pass a bit and the Puoux a lot where sketchy bolting is far more common.

I thought pulling the crux was a little heady before clipping the bolt. However, the fall seems clean as you would likely pop off and out, missing the ledge below.

Did this route again yesterday. It is really fun - awesome jug climbing in the middle. Definitely harder if you are less than 6 feet. Another great recent moderate. Big thanks to all the folks putting up routes for mere mortals all over RMP. These make this a much better place to climb.
