This route starts on some rust colored streaks. The 2nd bolt can seem high, just remember those jugs are good! Keep you footwork together and sequence to make the slipmer moves to a rest. Shuffle along the shelf going left, at the end are some wild sculpted chickenheads. Climb up and right using more memorable chickenheads to the anchor. WILD!
The route starts at the top of the hill (which often is full of Thistle). Find a flat spot kicked in the hill for the belay.

Overhanging granite jug hauling is an uncommon thing in the Wasatch.

Got a sweet handjam and high feet and skipped the sloper. Awesome pitch, slightly shitty belay. No loose rock anywhere on the route.

I spent at least a good 10 minutes trying to figure out how to skip the sloper; Daniel, you must have a wingspan matching LeBronís. A really good route; kudos to the FA. By the way, whatís the line just to the right of Pirate Treasure? Iíd say it's 11a, two stars (and advise taking microcams).

As others mentioned, If you're around 6' or have a decent ape index you can reach all the way to the jug from the hand jam, thus skipping the sloper. In other words, the difficulty of this climb is very much height dependent. Also, the route does not start at the top of the hill (as stated in the description). It starts 20-30 down from the top. The rust colored streak is the easiest marker.
