Short but powerful route. Climb up the start of "It's only Interment" then head straight up onto the thin seam. First crux involves using side pulls and high feet to reach way up and left for a thin micro crimp. Work your way onto the face and clip the second bolt (awkward) and get ready for the next crux: a full on gaston press with poor feet to a sloping crystal, then push down on gaston like a mantle and pop to the jug. From there it's only 10b/c to the lip (remember to bring some gear for this section or pre-place). Note: First bolt is tricky to clip and a bit high (can u stick clip?), maybe use some gear in the crack below to clip this bolt and down climb to restart as clipping this bolt screws up the sequence.

3 out of 5 stars FA

Psyched to get the FA. Lots of work went into the RP.
