This is a quality route! Short and very powerful at the grade. Head up into the cave recess in the center of the Nest. On the left side of the cave, you get a tie off, and bolts that traverse out left over space, then up. The traverse has big huecos that have distinct sweet spots. WHen you start moving up, you're doing heavy duty tufa pinching. Athletic!

Great route that can be extended up the 6a pillar above to make the whole thing 30 meters.
