This is truly amazing route. This is a delicate romp up the steep slab to the right of Cracks Happen and left of Animatronic. Another route, the Mannequin, 12c, deviates right at The Audition's third bolt (two separate bolts here). The first bolt is just above first overlap with the easiest approach a simple reach from near a mini-detached spire to the left. This continous climb cranks through the next overlap and another two bolts on thin edges and pockets, only then does it ease up a bit just before one hits larger holds on a seam near the top. Classic.


8 bolts to 2 bolt chain anchor.

Mannequin has separate chains down and to the right of The Auditions' chains, despite the topo lines in the picture.
