A fun route that starts in a corner crack (hence the need for 15' of crack pro) or as a variation could be started on the stem/face to the right (Capital Punishment) which would be in keeping it a pure sport route. Nice climbing thru the initial bolts becoming increasingly more challenging as one nears a bulge in a quasi-stemming dihedral (the crux), thence easier climbing (less challenging then it first appears) to the belay anchors.
Upon first entering the creek/canyon, it's the 2nd bolted route on the North side. Be aware, the bolts start some 35' above the creek.
8 bolts and a couple of cams medium to large, or if the variation is done- 10 bolts (including a sling for the 2nd bolt).

Good climb starting off, once you get to the 2 foot roof it starts to get a lot more fun. It took me a couple hours to solve this but a very useful climb make sure you bring some stoppers for the first 30 feet.
