Beautiful line. Hard moves off the ground to a crack. I found that it required many gastons and sidepullsthrough the lower half. Look for good feet out left of crack to rest. Between 1st and 2nd bolt is the cam placement. It is easier to skip the 2nd bolt and make the moves to a jug and clip the 3rd bolt. A .12c move leads to much easier climbing (<.11d) above to a nut or alien placement. It's then knobs to the finish. Possible to TR by soloing <5.6 crack on left of formation and rapping off anchor to routes below (Rising Sun .13c, Electric Africa . 12c, European Vacation .13a)
