An undercut start gives way to a sea of pockets, most of which are good, then a slight runout to a stance beneath the finishing bulge. The top section can be done by going out left on a giant flake system which is easier, but has a potential swinging fall, or it can be done by going straight up past a three finger pocket which is harder but a much cleaner fall (recommended).
Also, the guide shows four bolts but really there's five on the route.
