Description 

This route deserves more love. The sequences are brilliant. The climbing is difficult and bouldery for the entire length, requiring precision stabs to small pockets and small edges. One of the bolts (4th or 5th) is difficult to clip and I ended up skipping it on redpoint. I think this is one of the better hard (a relative term, I know) routes in AF that is too often overlooked. Go do it!


Location 

Snaked From NY is the far left route at the Grey Cliffs.


Protection 

6-7 bolts.

The really hard to clip bolt was retro bolted- Still hard but a much better placement.
