A popular sustained and technical route with a powerful start up the steep groove. Start up Hardy Annual and follow the resin bolts direct up the wall.

cold steal is too sustained for 7c+. 6c at the bottom and then a sustained 6b sequence up the headwall with a tough finish add up to 8a. Much harder than it's neighbor, Man with a gun which is also given 7c+.

One to stay away from on a warm day. A long quick draw on the 3rd makes life a lot easier.

A long 'draw on the 4th bolt makes life a bit more comfortable as well...
