I think this has gotten harder since i first climbed it, around a year ago, maybe .8+ now because the holds, especially crux start holds, are getting greasier. it will probably only continue to get harder.
The first ascent was done by former CTA student Ella Yenigun, and this is where the route get its name. Also, it has 5 bolts and two sets of bolted anchors, although the higher anchors are seldom used.

|Watch out for a wasps' nest in a pocket over and to the right of the bulge at the third bolt. It's easy to reach blindly over the bulge and into the nest. Better off getting a little higher stance, peeking over the bulge, and finding a clean pocket. There are 3-4 good options. Or staying left near the bolt. Otherwise, really fun climb.|
