This route is pretty decent. Dirtier than the other routes on the ledge but still good rock quality underneath. It's a totally fine lead, I'd say it is the same start as Quantum Mechanics and shares the same first bolt as there is no other real start in this section of the wall. Once you clip the bolt move right for Tinker's Toy or Left for Quantum Mechanics. The rest of the route is easy pulling on big plates and jugs with gear in horizontals. Plenty of gear for a lead. I'd recommend climbing crude boys to access the ledge this route is located on instead of the bushwhack around.
