mantle once, mantle again, mantle twice more, climb 10 feet and clip chains, fun climbing the whole way though

This route was pretty cool but not nearly as cool as its neighbor, Lip Service. I felt like I went waaaay left of the bolt for the first tough move but it was the path of least resistance and there was a ton of chalk out there so it looks like others are doing the same.

Cool route. Some bouldery movment on good crimps. If your six foot, this one is pretty easy for the grade.

If you're 5'8", this one is pretty easy for the grade.

if you are 5'10" you crush harder than anyone else. for me, this one was way better than lip service, but Ray is pretty weak so I could understand his confusion. subtle and sweet moves.

If you want to climb this route because the black streak looks cool, you will be disappointed. 95% of the route lies climbs completely to the left of the streak. Bolt job felt fairly botched too.
