|3 - Checkerboard
There are a few distinct cruxes on this one with mellow climbing in between. This climb is very featured with awesome edges, slots, flakes, and even some polished slab thrown in for good measure.
This is the leftmost route on the Checkerboard. It ascends a water streak through many different features. The easiest way to find this one is to look for a bolted lined that starts in opposing cracks right off the ground. Queen of Kings is the route to the right of this marker.
11 bolts + anchors

There is a ledge a few bolts off the ground. Today while climbing I fully weighted and then pulled off a brick sized rock when coming up onto the ledge. Luckily I still had some weight on feet, thus no ass over tea kettle fall backwards
