QD only. This 70 foot route needs 8 - 10 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
Punishment for Shoplifting starts 15 - 20 feet left of the blackish water streak that has Psycho Hose Beast running right up it. A slightly airy first clip with a burly move launches the route. Follow up a corner/seam system for six or seven clips on great stone, well protected, and equipped with a host of good moves. Edges and laybacks. The exit at the top of the corner/seam seemed a bit spooky inasmuch as the moves were a bit in-obvious, however, a near horrizontal crack just below the anchors will provide a fine answer for the finish, if you look around for the feet. This fine line is well worth two stars, and well worth the short hike.

Made it past the first crux, then got to the layback section with is NOT an obvious layback. I tried to go straight up, down climbed a few feet, went straight up again and fell. After the fall I did it correctly with a layback which made it a ton easier!
