Description 

This climb popped up over the winter with no bolts, only a plaque on the wall and the rating. From the looks of the cracks it looks like you have two bomber placements, the first being ten feet off the ground and the next being about 20, there is potential to deck if one were to fall placing the second piece.

Heavy on the cams for the rack. A pumpy first move and first placement. Also there is a space in the middle with shaky gear.

Can be easily toproped if you don't have trad gear. As usual the crux is down low, fun crux, easy after that.

The starting move is much harder than the rest of the route.

So unless I'm completely wrong (which could be the case but I don't see how) this run is fully bolted now. I mean directly beneath the bolts was the name plate, so I assume i was on the right route. Anyway, fun climb. I think its my favorite at Red Rock

It's bolted alright, this route sports a fun boulder-type problem at the beginning, followed by some small finger cracks/pockets. The climbing gets easier after the initial crux, a great route if you're new to the grade.
