Although listed as a sport route I have to warn you there are only two bolts on the whole route although there are a few spots for small cams and tcu's if you look hard enough. The crux is a little bit obove the second bolt and then you run it out to the chains.
to the right of For a Rocker and left of Blades of Steel.

There are two fixed wires sticking out low. I believe they are before the first bolt and after the first bolt. One is definately a large head placed in a small crack. I was told these are both from the first ascent before the bolts were added and were the only pro! You can top rope this after climbing For A Rocker.

I did the FA of this route with Carl Murray around 1990 or so. I used the copperheads that someone else had placed plus a couple of TCUs. I toproped the climb twice (but fell both times) before giving it a go on the lead. I thought the boulder problem start was the crux and rated that 5.12. I was happy when Tony put the bolts in as it is really a nice climb - although the shade tree has fallen down now.
