Start on Malice but move pull a tough cross move at the overhang and bust up and right past a sloper crux. You're racing the pump clock on this one so move quick. End with easier climbing near a crack to reach the chains.

Great route on cool holds. Should get more traffic. Also maybe in need of a downgrade. Felt on par with wobbler and stalker and light years easier than malice despite only a grade difference.

Super nice resistance climbing. I know you like that term Kipp.
