This route climbs the left hand edge of the Magic Bus wall. Although there is nothing really wrong with the route, it's not quite as good as others on the cliff, having rock of less quality and being a little shorter.Climb the now-bolted line at the left edge of the crag to reach the anchors up and right, above Blonde Dwarf.

I found the route finding a little tricky. Climbiing on the left side of the bolts is easier than climbing on the right side. Having said that, there is no way this route is a 9+. I rate it a 9 or 9-. Still found the route to be fun.

A great climb on positive holds. Less travelled than the easier sport routes on this wall.

If you toprope this route, you might want to leave in some directional quickdraws on the top couple of bolts. Otherwise, climbers will have a difficult time staying on route. The direct line to the anchor is about a grade more difficult than the line following the bolts.
This is a very fun route that starts out easy on big holds and gets plenty challenging with crimpers and side pulls at the top!

Stay left from the start up through bolt 4. Move rightat the 4th bolt to the 5th bolt then straight up to the anchors. A bit more strenuous then Neon Sunset, but positive holds throughout. As a TR, we left the 4th bolt clipped as a directional.

You can do the last section going left or to the right. Right being straight up. The left was really too easy, but if you go straight up which is to the right of the last clip, the climb was a lot more fun and a tad harder. I tried both ways and I really enjoyed going rt more than going left. FYI, most of the chalk is to the left of the last clip.

My favorite route on the Magic Bus. It takes a little more thought than it's neighbors . . .

On 3/3/10, the LVCLC with help from the ASCA replaced the anchors on this route with two 1/2" x 2.75" SS 5-piece bolts and mussy hooks. Pro bolts are all in great shape and did not need replacements.

My favorite climb here. Aside from "Neon Sunset," this route features the most continuous climbing. It felt like a solid 5.9 to me, but probably nothing harder.

Handren must have been confused when he gave three stars to Neon Sunset and only one to this route. I think he meant to do it the other way around. This is a much better route, though the finish is odd for a sport route.
Also, if this is 5.9+, then the 5.9+ routes in the Black Corridor are 11a. No single move harder than 5.8.
