Description 

4 bolts of easy climbing lead to some tricky 5.10 moves through the suddenly vertical yellow lichen covered middle section of the route. Gradually easier climbing ends abruptly below the crux bulge and the last bolt (reach high from good holds below bulge to clip). A couple of harder moves on micro edges are followed by increasingly better holds to the chains.

Location 

1st route left of Tour De Poudre and right of the obvious crack system that splits the middle/left side of the wall (Thursday Afternoon Hooky). There is a small bush above the anchor and there is not a 2nd pitch.

Protection 

9 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

I have to agree, there is definitely no reason to add another bolt before the crux as it would change the flavor substantially. This a fun route, nice job Bryan.
