Great route. Thought it was a bit more sustained in nature than The Knife with a couple of interesting cruxes, particularly the top crux, which Jeff describes as a "Verdon-style slab finish." It's a set of moves that many will find themselves "on edge" for, as you're making a pretty good move, kinda awkward, with the bolt at your foot, or at least that's how I did it.

Technically this route finishes at the threaded anchor shared with Smells Like Victory but there's a lot of loose rock (mostly pebbles) going to that anchor and the threaded anchor is kinda lame, IMO, so it's probably best/safest/wisest to finish at the anchor for Post Op because it's right there anyway.

This route now has a 2 bolt anchor instead of the original thread anchor.

The original finish, with some great, stout slab moves is not to be missed and the new anchor helps convince you to finish in this way. Finishing out right or cheating out left causes you to miss some great climbing.
