Just to the right of White Noise and Daily Grind, on the black (and possibly damp) dark streak in the rock. Climb up the streak to a 30-degree overhang on pockets, and follow bolts to the top.
Bolts. Please do not toprope off of the fixed gear at the top, use your own draws for that. If the biners on the chains look worn or do not work properly, please replace them. It's good karma.

first climb left of midsummer.
look left of misummer at the area above the first roof (the big roof that splits almost all the climbs at willow), sudden shock climbs just left of the obvious water/moss streak. this streak is often seeping water in the spring.

Awesome climb! Best one of the evening. Was out yesterday and this route was very dry and wonderful. Didn't have to worry about about any falling debris like on routes to the left of this one.

Busted a nice hold today, (4/9/2012) the hold was after the second bolt and before the third bolt.
Shouldn't change the rating, but will certainly change things up!
