Description 

The start is the crux.

The route is the first one encountered at the top of the trail. Look for a left angling bolt line. Rap from anchors on "Meteor Shower."

This is the most right of these 3 newer routes first encountered on the wall. The holds are sharp. Beware of loose rock on these 3 climbs.

Crux is pretty much right off the ground. Backs off big time after 3rd bolt. Mussy Hooks at anchor.

Why would someone chop the 1st bolt of a climb that has a crux near the ground? Do they think they can place pro here and now they are a badass on this insignificant little climb?

Crux it the 1st bulge, followed by the 2ed bulge. Harder than Meteor Shower IMHO. Fun cruising above those initial cruxes.
