Up to the fourth bolt is pretty easy - 5.9ish moves on bomber ledges. After the 4th bolt, gets pretty hairy pretty quick. Could stick the move up the slopey ledge but couldn't get much farther. Ended up having the lead Sand in My Crack again to save the draws lol.

If you have a trad rack, it's easy to set up a toprope for this route since it shares anchors with the 5.7 Sand in My Crack. Definitely worth working if you're in the area.
