Two bolts protect the start. Forget about placing ...
The meat of this route is at the bottom. You can start below the first bolt (a good hold broke here while we were on it, so it is probably a bit harder), or ~6 ft to the left. Clip the only two bolts on the route, and pump your way through some typical New River Gorge not-really-crack-climbing. After this, enjoy easier gear protected climbing to the anchors.
Far left end of Orange Wall, right of Tatanka and Rock Jihad. Very distinct 20 ft crack at the bottom
2 bolts, gear, Metolius rap anchors

The top two thirds consists of climbing on a bunch of really cool microwave oven sized plates. A medium sized sampling of cams up to #1 Camalot provide pro in mostly horizontal seams between plates. A tad heady but really fun after the crux.
