This has mostly good hands and a move or two of .10a where it pinches down. Join with Frank's Wild Years where it cuts back right (i.e., .11a/b).
Start 30' left of Frank's Wild Years. Climb the 5.10 hand crack in the right-facing corner and join with Frank's Wild Years.

This route really has some varied climbing and not *that* many good hand jams. Like most of the Quarry, the rock is flaring and a little odd. Gear is great though. Single rack to #3 with extra purple to gold Camalots sews it up. The only significant detractor is the last bit of climbing above the final crux on pretty crappy rock. A few slings are nice for the traverse section, and you can double up gear on the upper crux to make sure you stay off the ledge.
A fixed purple TCU sits at the "campus" crux. It's been there a while but seems solid. You can back it up if you like.
