Nice route, almost as much fun as Speedway Boogie to the left. Nice roof pull at the end. The high first bolt and bouldery opening moves make for a nervy start; stick clip if you're not solid at the grade.

Another fun gear route. Step right between bolts 1-3 for gear in the corner than step back left up higher. The natural line feels a little easier (and more aesthetic) than going straight up the bolt line.

Manuevering the fun flake to start raises the blood pressure a smidgen but continues onto a relaxed, smooth ride of good holds until you reach the short man crux. Trust a high sloper and prepare for the cool mantle to the clips.
