Description 

This is the third route from the left on Irok featuring overhanging climbing for the first 30 feet. The crux is between the second and third bolt and is followed by some strenuous, but slightly easier climbing to a slab. The headwall above the slab is about 5.10b. Powerful and technical climbing on not so painful holds make this one of the better outings at the crag. Some of the bunker busters launched off of here made it all the way to the creek. Watch for wasps in the crack in the lower part of the slab.

These are quite possibly the best routes in the entire universe ,If, you can send on IROK?

I think the route falls just short of 4 stars.The move to the slab is all torque.

So the sequence at the 4th bolt totally stumped me (after the vertical hand jam). It seemed much more difficult than the earlier sequence... any beta out there?
