Start by an elder. A steep start leads past two bolts to a rest and easier climbing. One more tricky move just below the lower-off.

With clips in. Tried to link this into the top of Tied in Knots (6c), but fell off at the last bolt! I thought there were more jugs up there, but maybe it was just harder than I remembered. This would probably make a cool link up anyway, despite the no hander on the 6c.
