Description 

This is below par for most routes in this sector. The Pocket (not the original name, so help me here Tom) climbs through a chert pocket of considerable dimension just left of Seamless.

A hard move off a stack of small blocks gains a chert pocket and some sharp edges and flakes. Reasonable, blocky cobbles follow, however, the line runs through a section of wall that runs a terrific amount of water in the Spring, so the route has never been clean. Pulling through the pocket can be a kick, but overall there are much better lines at the same grade to be had just a few feet away.

Protection 

Eight draws and a rope.
