For the grade it seems necessary to start left of the bolt line. This route is also the start of The Bitchin' High Traverse, which arcs up and right on permadraws. It also starts a 5.9 linkup, following the permadraws up and right to the ledge and then up to Penelope Says So's anchors.

1 out of 5 stars poor route but serves a better linkup

The route's over too soon. But use its start to do a funner 5.9 linkup The Mexican Says So or The Bitchin' High Traverse.
