Description 

This route is the highest at Heise Rock, and provides the most exposure. Easy scramble up to first bolt. Second bolt is closer than it looks, just go for it and watch those feet (a little slick). Work under two small roofs before tackling the big one. Huge underclings with big throw for massive jugs and pockets. The topout is a piece of cake since you've got big holds, but if you're pumped it could be difficult.


Location 

On the south face, just right of the obvious crack with the large chockstone.


Protection 

6 bolts

This route is a good one, but if you want to get the most out of it, don't do the ramp start. Start just to the right where "Little Ninja" is painted on the rock and follow those bolts until they merge with Humor for a much more interesting climb.

I agree with sam, the slab start is odd, but the upper half might be the best moves on Heise in my opinion.
