The crux is, well, the crux could be a lot of places. it could be in the first third, where the the thinnest moves are, or it could be in the middle, where you literally palm the ridge for what feels like forever, or it could be the top-out mantle that occurs 15 feet above, and to the left of the last bolt.... I'll go with the mantle. This can be a spooky route for a 5.8 leader, and not a pretty one to fall on.
This route is the farthest left of Ronin's routes, and ascends the left side of the smooth ridge/arete (this is the first feature you'll see approaching along the trail from the west).
One or two small TCU's can be slotted behind a flake before reaching the first bolt. Then just start clipping.

very sustained technical edges and slab made this climb feel stiff (and rewarding!) for the grade. Bolt spacing seems bold but easily top-roped. Great practice for improving confidence in your feet.

I should have no problem at this grade, but I retreated after placing the first (and only possible) piece of gear 10' up and still 10' from the first bolt. TR'd it and was glad I didn't lead it - the top would also be scary. Really fun route though!
