Description 

The second route from the right in the Hole in the Wall. This is a harder and longer version of the route to the right (The Warden). The business ends abruptly and is followed by some very aesthetic easy climbing.


Protection 

9 bolts to anchors.

Super fun! Hard through the first 3 bolts - eases up considerably up top (no harder than 5.9) but the bolt spacing keeps it very interesting....

Really fun route with a fierce start. I wasn't really warmed up and had to shake my fingers out a bit when I got to better holds. Good crimping and tricky feet. Like Derek said, the upper part is great and keeps your attention as you are climbing well above bolts on holds that are insanely positive. They are so good I was a bit nervous about them breaking, but they seemed pretty solid.

Crux section is well bolted, they are right where you want them.
