Starts at the crack to the right of Shady Chimney. Mostly hand holds at the beginning, up to a decent hand crack. You can stem on Shady Chimney at first crux.
End of the route has an interesting pair of finger cracks and large step blocks.
The crack opposite of Shady Chimney. Optional variation links up to Corner Pockets after the pillar.

I found it plenty safe on gear to 3". Trundled several large blocks 10' below and left of chains chalked with an X a couple weeks ago. The lower chalked piece 1/2 way up route is very well keyed in, I spent some time seeing if it could slide out, to no avail. It is easy to climb by it without using it however.

this route gets my vote as the best 5.9 at Vantage, it is better and more interesting than Air Guitar.
