This is a great route! Begin by using a few smaller holds to gain a series of jugs that take you to the 2nd bolt. From here, head up and get under the first roof, clip the bolt and find a rest out left. Once rested, traverse back right and make a big reach to a positive horizontal. Get setup and make another reach to another positive horizontal and traverse right a bit to clip the 5th bolt. From here, keep it together and head out right to gain a nice rest (crux). Rest up, and traverse back left, make the final clip and follow very good holds to the finish.
This route located about 20 feet to the left of the start of Flight of the Gumbie, 5.9.
6 bolts, shuts.

Big holds, big moves, big fun. Do not miss this one.

Agreed. This thing is so, so fun. Crux moving from the 5th bolt to the corner but the moves really aren't too tough, just pumpy.

Tall friendly. This was my first 5.12. I'm 6'4", and honestly it felt easier than I lot of the 5.11c's I've done. The crux is three dynos in a row, and shorter climbers are going to have to work harder for it. But a good first 5.12 if you're really tall.
In any case, its an awesome route, and should be on everyone's todo list.

I'm 5'10" and didn't have to dyno a single time in this. I have also seen people around 5'7" on this route and they were able to do everything static as well.
