Climb bolts 1-3 on Unfinished Monkey Business then traverse over to Lessamir's last bolt (perma draw) and onward to Hello Netherkitty's last bolt (perma draw) and onward again to My Name Was Muffin's last bolt (perma draw) and up to its anchors. You can skip the last perma draw, but trust me, it feels exposed when you glance back at the distance to the previous one at 8 o'clock to your position, and if you blow it, the fall is a long diagonal one from 2 o'clock to 8 o'clock from the last protection.

4 out of 5 stars FA...

Finally, I got back and refreshed my memory of the holds and feet then worked new beta to Muffin's sport anchors.

This was a nice accomplishment. Not terribly difficult on individual moves, but quite sustained.
