5 out of a possible 5
Climbing Area Index / Cathedral Ledge / Magic Hat #9 (5.12b)
Directions:  Starts at Abracadabra's two bolt anchor.
Description: Good luck pulling this one out of your onsight bag of tricks!
    Pitch 1: Above Abracadabra's two bolt anchor, climb edges and flakes upto the first bolt. TCUs and small nuts protect technical moves upto a mantle shelf (hidden pin). A smart runout gains better holds before traversing right under an overlap (great rest). Reachy moves trend left across a green face to the arete (crux). Continue up to a gear anchor.

Gear: standard rack
Descent: gotta just keep on climbing!
