The first bolted line right of the crack splitting the middle of the wall. Begin with some difficult bouldering then launch into a long journey of pumpy climbing with an exciting run or two. Stick clip the third bolt if it hasn't been moved. You'll know if it's directly above the second bolt and tough to clip from the obvious holds on the right.

Boulder problem felt harder than V4 to me (yes, I use the shit out of the kneebar)....Nice flash Craig!

There were some people watching while I was on it and I could hear this guy talking about it being v7. I honestly just figured it couldn't be that hard if I did it. Maybe it was my lucky day. It was hard no doubt. No kneebars for me, maybe a little scum, but just sitting hard on that left foot to go to the left crimp. Thanks for the draws I'm guessing. Super cool route.
