Description 

This mixed route starts in the dihedral to the right of Primate Primer. Pull through a small roof to a ledge. Continue past three bolts protecting fun moves and the crux which is an committing move to gain a stance. Ten more feet get you to chain anchors. I would have placed the anchors higher to allow about 10 more feet of moderate climbing but rock quality prevented this.

Location 

Located to the right of Primate Primer

Protection 

A rack of singles from .5-#3(BD) and doubles of #1 and #2. Stoppers could come in handy as well. Three sport draws for the bolts.

Great stemming problem with quite a bit of funk to get out of the corner. I'd skip on the doubles but bring small cams (green C3/blue alien).

Mad props to Zac for pulling that last moves with a micronut in the chip as his last piece of pro, that must have been exciting. Great route, FA in impressive style. Classy. More please.
