This route starts off without too much difficulty but the higher you get, the harder it becomes. The first four bolts clock in at 5.9+. Bolts 5-6 contain a roof crux before traversing right at bolt 7 – reachy. Next ascend tips layback before traversing left
to the anchors via desperate slab. Can be TR’ed by tensioning off King for a Day anchors via a hard tension.
