Nearing the top of Deepwater Horizon.
Ascend the thin seam up the bulging face. Stick clip the first bolt. The hardest moves are the start, but it is far from over. Continue up the seam up a short right-facing corner to a horizontal break at a small overlap (5.12a/b). A sidepull slapping redpoint crux leads above 5th bolt to a mantle finish. This climb is sustained and pumpy for its length.
This is located just right of "Old Man & The Sea".
6 bolts / 2 bolt anchor.

Another fun route at this crag! Better holds than some of the other climbs for sure, but also a bit steeper/pumpier. Sustained climbing from the ground to the chains!

Great climb with great movement and intelligently bolted. So far, my favorite at the crag.

The left anchor bolt could use some Loctite. The nut was quite loose today. The hooks at the top are a nice treat though.
