This one is a nice looking line and looks deceptively easy. Many have backed down due to the high first bolt. A combination of friction footwork and balancey side pulls makes this a great route and a hard 9. A cam can be placed low on the route if desired for a more tolerable first clip.
On the Left side of the wall. Just to the right of Spawning Effort. It's the only climb on the wall that looks like a slab route.
Sport. One medium cam down low if desired

Great route! Fun thin face climbing. Takes a great yellow Metolius before the first bolt. 3 bolts, chain anchor. This is the 4th route from left. The first bolt on this route is shared with Our Typhoon Rhythm, Grog Supply, and Magic Cutlass.

This is an old-school bolted route. The cam in question is a yellow Alien/Metolius.

If I recall correctly, we felt the placing and spacing of the bolts on lead was a bit exciting.
