This route starts right of, and crosses over, Token of My Extreme. The trickiest part runs just left of an obvious water stain. There is a height dependent crux in this nearly vertical zone that favors taller climbers. Climbing remains tricky up to a large pocket and bulge, then become less vertical with easier holds to the anchors.
Rightmost route on Zappa Dome
Eight bolts. One hanger and one chain for anchors.

Sustained 5.8 if you can reach the height-dependent move at the crux. If not, I think it pushes the grade up a notch.

Seems a bit contrived to start this route to the right of Token. Am I missing something?
