    This route is pretty fun. I found that you can skip the trad gear by using the first three bolts of Bolt Cola, until the bolts on simmer start.

    If you skip the trad gear and use the first three bolts of Bolt Cola, be sure to bring a longer runner for the third bolt to reduce rope drag.

    Not as fun as Shimmer, IMO. After I pulled the roof, I found myself bushwacking to the anchors.
