Will starting the business of the climb.

Description 

Crank out a quick boulder problem through a roof and style up slopey jugs to a traverse into the Pod.
Bust out the thin crux and gain a big ledge for the only rest on the route.
Once the ledge is left, this route is ON! Only 5 moves to the chains...but they are tough!
Remember that without an anchor clip it's not a send.

Location 

First route on the right side of the Colosseum proper. Left of the ridiculous looking Still Life boulder.

Protection 

Fixed chains with steel wiregates...plush.

There are bolts on an extension and a newer right finish, I don't know if either has been red-pointed.

The climbing out of the POD is pretty continuous on flat edges. The upper boulder problem is not that bad, the holds are all pretty big, just longer pulls on a steeper section of rock, also I only did 3 moves to clip the chains, not 5.

Very fun, perfect stone and cool varied movement.
