Just right of Love Potion. Begin with a reachy move right off the ground then prepare for a strenuous reach-and-release crux between bolts 2 and 3. After wondering how you pulled the crux off enjoy a nice jug run to the chains. Don't worry, they're up there.

Fun first three bolts. Felt like a walk in the park compared to N4.

So many options! Found myself wandering away from the bolts near the top a few times. Fun onsite adventure. Climbs a lot better than it looks

holds were pretty sharp but maybe thats cuz it was 30 degrees out haha. Also some stuff was breaking off but I assume because this is a fairly new route? or doesn't have a lot of climbs on it?

I agree with Willy, this route climbs a lot better than it looks. All the rock seemed solid until about 3/4 of the way up. After that, some feet might crumble on you. Belayers beware.
