Pocket Pulling through the steep middle part of the OT bulge. You can get into this route from either Crossover OR Sleep Deprivation - Leave either route at the 4th bolt and climb to the base of Glue Steel. For the most "new" climbing, start as for Sleep Deprivation. At the ledge, stay LEFT of the bolts. Pull up on an upward slanting flake/rail for a few moves and then head up, clipping the S.D. bolts off to your right. After clipping S.D.'s 4th bolt, climb up and left to the Big Swiss Cheese Hole at the base of the bulge. Follow 4 glue in bolts up and slightly left through the middle of the bulge.

4 out of 5 stars Fun, Short Climb

I enjoyed this route even though it's really only 6 or so moves, it's hard for me to tell what it's rated, I would guess close to .12b
