Description 

Fun, safe climbing on great stone. Crux seems to be getting to the first bolt, though there are plenty of thoughtful moves above.

Location 

The bolted line on the pillar to the left of Orange Sunshine. A finger crack up a smooth face leads to the first bolt.

Protection 

Bolted, but you'll want small gear getting to the first bolt and perhaps between the 2nd and 3rd bolts. Anchor on top.

challenging balancy climbing on the edge of a pillar face. I stem/flagged off to the left for the finish but was unsure of the neighboring but distant pillar being 'in'.

I (as the first ascentionist) have always climbed straight up at the finish, using two small high crimps and high-stepping onto the good edge you clip the last bolt from. I've always considered this the crux of the route.
