This popular climb goes to the first set of three anchors. The complete Youth continues with 5.12c climbing to either of the upper two anchors.
As it is, climbing to the first set of anchor is quality and enjoyable. Begin with engaging and slightly runout climbing (5.9) past the first couple of bolts on steep, slightly less than vertical terrain. Above, well-protected face climbing leads to a horizontal break where the steep, overhanging climbing begins. Navigate the first bulge on big holds and continue above for a forearm-inducing pump on big jugs to the anchor.
Uphill of Kor's Corner, this route is furthest left on the wall before reaching the big cave amphitheater and the approach to the upper climbs of The Long Haul and Honk in the Tunnel.
8 bolts and anchor.

Great route, a little runout down lower as described.
