Description 

A good route overall. The climb starts in an interesting low-angle slot behind a thin flake, then steps out right to a few bolts (crux) on this flake before climbing up the face on the right side of the left-facing corner with big moves between big plates. Up top you can place gear in horizontals, but the upper part of the climbing is moderate and secure and it may not feel necessary. 100' to a set of chain anchors.

Location 

This climb starts at the Base of "Humble's Tumble" which has the distinction of being the single most obvious corner climb on the upper East side of the Breadloaves.

Protection 

A set of draws and a few cams if you like.

It seems a little contrived to head right at the first bolt. It's easy to stay in the OW to the ledge and then head right onto the face. Felt like 10a or so doing it this way. Upper face is so beautiful!

There is a full on sideways lunge to a huge plate jug. Funnest move of the route. Those horizontals up top are pretty handy for protection.

First bolt very contrived (and difficult) - i.e. not the natural line at all. Good climbing on face above with one slightly wandering section.

(Sideways lunge not necessary.)
