A bouldery 5.9+ crux starts at the lowest point of the wall between February Summer and Pipe Dreams. Follow thin protection opportunities diagonally to the right until you are within arm's reach of the February Summer bolt line. Pull over the overhang and shoot straight up the face. There is a small arete that defines the line and keeps you close to the somewhat limited and tricky protection opportunities. The top is 5.7, and although squeezed with February Summer, it is altogether different.
Between February Summer (on the right) and Pipe Dreams (on the left). This is a wandering route that stays just to the left of February Summer (following protection opportunities).
Standard trad rack, bring some RPs or brass for the first twenty feet, nothing larger than a gold camalot. Shares the two chain anchors of February Summer to the right.
- 8-10 draws to a two-bolt anchor.

Currently completely bolted. Fun route.

Fun chill route. Crux is certainly the first few moves. Bolts are exactly where you want them.

Really good climbing and, yes, no gear required. I'd say the 3rd bolt forces you left onto more awkward terrain but no biggie.
