The route goes clean at C2. Climb C1 to funked alien or cam hook (whipper) to reach first bolt. Hand placed pecker after first bolt. Hooks to belay are G-reat. Mine wasn't the first clean ascent. Fun but short.

The "finger flake" at the top of the pitch, requires extra caution. It is very hollow, and pulls away from the wall with minor effort. Don't bounce the hook on top of it, just creep and go. I noticed a bathook after I reached the anchors, it was filled with mud; a home to a wasatch hornet. It is about 2-3" above the flexi flake. I think you could throw a talon in it, maybe tap a beak in it. Fun route
