Move right from Believer to the next bolted line. Begin with a thin start which leads to better holds and fun climbing with a nice hueco rest midway. Keep it together for the long run to the anchors.

the first couple moves are the thinnest moves on the route so preclipping the first bolt is a good idea. the huge hueco's make a good spot to rest mid-climb but don't use them for a challenge. falling at the anchors makes for a nice whip!

Very fun. The bouldery start makes it a poor choice for a warmup though.

Tough boulder problem for the grade at the start and then sustained to the waco. Good route, but extremely full value 11c.
