Description 

This is the leftmost bolted line at the Upper Wall at The Real Hidden Valley. Apparently it is called Streakers. It climbs a bit oddly as the obvious line of holds lie a bit to the right of the bolts.

Move up and left towards the 1st bolt. You can get yellow & orange TCUs before the bolt. Continue up and right of the bolts on bigger features. The crux is at the top. You may find a line perhaps 11+ if you stay more belly-to-the-bolts. There is no fixed anchor. There is a tall boulder under which you can get a #3.5 and #4 Camalot. There is a tree back from the edge that can be slung with 20+ feet of sling. Be careful not to have your slings go over the various loose blocks up there.


Location 

This is the 2nd leftmost bolted line up at this crag. It ascends a steepening slab.


Protection 

4 bolts, orange & yellow TCUs, #3.5 & #4 Camalot for the anchors, and probably 30 feet of slings.

I bolted the line thinking it would be cool staying in the obvious streak direct with the bolts on very thin crimps (5.11+). It turned out to be to contrived with better holds on the right edge of the streak (5.10). It is still easy enough to clip the bolts, but they will be off to the left.
