5 Bolts to 2 bolt anchor
This begins on the right side of the platform formed by the boulder right of where the approach trail meets the wall. Sustained edges, sidepulls, and crimps will lead to the anchors with some distance between clips.

Take your time on this one and don't be fooled into moving too quickly. You can get into bad positions that are hard to undo. Toward the top there is a left-angling, sloppy platform that requires some shuffling to get passed. I did more of a heel hook style ascent past this and almost fell off. A decent route but not great.
It was ok. My first time at red slab so I started with Rattle and Scream. a couple bolts that were a little spaced, otherwise it was ok. Though it was my least favorite of the four climbs I did on red slab. My favorite was Dimondback if you don't have a lot of time skip Rattle and Scream and climb DimondBack.
This was a little heady for a warmup. There's several chances to hit the ground for the first couple of bolts and the routefinding isn't easy. The climbing is fun but it's not as intuitive as just following the boltline. Ended up heading left thinking that was where the anchors would be and then saw them to my right.
