Description 

Technique helps on this route as you stem, lieback and face climb your way up the corner to a finishing jug. A little dirty but more ascents should clean it up.

Location 

Just down and right from an obvious roof (Union Man).

Protection 

4 bolts, 2 bolt ring anchor

Only 4 bolts but their location makes the climb kinda awkward, I gave this route a 9+ for the unusual transitions. Still pretty fun route!

Good movement throughout and the side pulls after the fourth bolt are blocky but positive and the finishing jug is really sweet. Doesn't look like it but you feel the steepness finishing it up. Not pumpy though and a good route to start or end the day on.
