This is a superb route located on the lower wall of Coney Island. When you arrive at the base, this will be the furthest route left on the lower wall. The bolts will converge to a dihedral where the climbing is very fun. Place a piece in the corner, (may still be a small stopper there from my partner taking a fall on it), and stem your way to the anchors. The bottom of this route is harder than it looks from the ground. There are also bolts to the left of the start that could be used but would need very long slings. Just go straight up under the obvious corner. This is a great route.
4/5 bolts & 1 optional piece (small stopper) - 2 bolt anchor.

I concur. A short, but excellent route. Harder than it looks. Thoughtful moves with holds facing the wrong way -- this is not a pull-n-go type of route. I placed a piece of gear a few feet above the last bolt to protect the last hard move.

I would not call the wired nut for the finish "optional." Seemed essential to me!

Mid-size nut or small TCU sews up the top. Good route.
