A great lead for a solid 5.9 sport leader. This route is much better than it appears from the ground. Start on a large ledge and climb up heading left to a bulge and flake. Gain a stance, follow a left facing flake system that leads to a face with rounded horizontal ridges. Reachy last clip. Most of the harder moves require making the move before clipping the bolt.
Start on the ledge, 15 feet left of the Walking on the Moon corner.

Nice and slopey at the top. I went left before the last bolt and by the time I pulled the move I was above the bolt and right at the anchors, oops. Bolts felt a bit run out, maybe a bit heady for a new leader. Be sure to stick clip the first bolt, you're not belaying from the ground but from a rock ledge, as the description says. Fun!

I recommend belaying from the ground. If you belay from the ledge, you can't see the climber for the last two thirds of the route.
