This route actually starts 5 feet left of "24 hour Bug". Really cool route with a well defined crux at the 4th bolt.

Tricky crux. Short but fun.

I heard during the FA the leader was whimpering like a small girl.

Ray and Michelle are known to climb hard, share beta, and the have their own bouldering wall. If it took each ot them two tries...that should tell you something about the difficulty of the boulder problem. Enjoy!

It's tough to grade it hard, but it's even tougher to grade it easy. Although I eventually managed to find a path what I assume must be the "proper" beta still baffles me.

Watch out! This thing eats ropes. Probably best to clean on TR so you can avoid destroying your sheath while swinging.
