The crux is the very overhanging hand to fist crack.
Start ten feet left of Momentum Operator.
Gear up to a blue Camalot and a couple of quickdraws for the two bolts at the start.
Rap from a two-bolt anchor.

This climb was inspired by the Momentus Swing Trainer which is designed to improve your golf swing. This climb will help you improve your fist jamming technique.

Agree with Dave, probably a full number grade easier. There is a route in the Rossiter book, I think it is called "Altar" (5.10) that seems very similar to Momentus Fist Trainer, minus the bolts at the start....

In the '99 Rositer book, this line is described as 'Out to Pasture', 10a, Hare and Wood, 1980, which seems about right. Funny that somewhere since it gets two bolts, renamed, and upgraded.
Don't know how its described in the newer BC book, but then you wouldn't know anything re the history or first ascentionist from that guide anyway....
Fun little line.
