A pitch with very few straightforward moves, highlighted by two sustained technical cruxes. Bring your whole bag of tricks: the route has pinches, crimps, gastons, toe hooks, shallow stems, long lock-off reaches, and a finger crack section to finish it all off.
Once at the base of the cliff, head left and up on a ledge system. See beta photo.

Great route. Varied climbing that stays with you the whole way.

Would Jesus bolt this route?
Looks like it could take gear in most parts from the photo.

Well, if Jesus could make wine out of a loaf of bread or whatever, I suppose he could conjure up some gear placements on this route. Absent divine intervention, however, you'll be hard-pressed to find relevant gear anywhere outside of the 5.10 finger crack that makes up the final 15 feet. The last bolt on the route protects this stretch and I debated whether to place it. Ultimately, I decided to stay in character with the rest of the route. If you don't want to clip it, bring along a couple of TCUs or equivalents.
