Description 

This is a very asthetic line, and a nice length for the Wood (about 65 feet of climbing). The first bolt is about 15 feet off the deck and the moves are dicey (for the 5.10 climber), so make sure you're solid for this first clip. The crux is a balancy pull up to a bulge to get to some deep pockets. A cobble may have pulled out at this bulge, leaving a slopey pocket and a cobble pinch for your hands. Once past the big pocket, pull quickly through this overhanging section for some more bomber pockets. Now angle up to the right through a few more slightly runout bolts to the anchors. This is a great route with a tricky and strenuous crux.


Protection 

5 bolts to 2 cold shuts.

The crux moves are really fun, but the rest of the route is mostly forgettable.

This is certainly a "wet-your-pant" route on lead, though the crux is relatively well protected. Great on top rope, better on lead. This is a route I'd rather encounter two pitches up, where I don't fear decking out as much as I do a long whipper.

Really fun route, right up there with Renaissance in my opinion. First clip is really high though with some dubious rock so either bring a stick clip, crash pad or steel cajones. This route is located 100 yards to the right and around the corner from the other 4 sport routes.
