This is the coolest move of the coolest route at t...


Scramble up the slab to the first bolt and continue up the ramp. The crux comes at the 3rd bolt where a good lip on the horizontal provides a nice undercling for you to "span the gap". Walk feet up the textured face and move on good holds up the left angling ramp to the anchors.


The middle section of the main face hosts 4 bolted lines. This is the left most one.


4 bolts to LO

There is a very similar, much more exposed, move on the top half of Scrubbing Bubbas at the NW Territories. If you're after more of the same that is what I'd recommend.
