Feeding Frenzy is another balancey, thin, smedging affair. It shares the beginning with Riptide, until the obvious pocket, then it angles right to the diagonalling crack. For me, this is where the crux was, (the book shows it above bolt 5) as it was tricky and delicate to get established on the crack. Then it climbs to the right of the big hole using better and better holds and edges. It finishes with a very steep, but juggy exit.
Shares the start with Riptide. It has rap anchors over the top on a ledge, so it can be rappelled. Watch the edge though.
7 bolts, a couple of runners, and if you feel like it a piece for the easy exit. Small cam would work.

Classic climbing for sure. Be careful getting to the 2nd bolt. I think it's the best .10 between the 2 crags. I would agree that the crux is down low versus were the book shows it too be.
