You can sling a block before the first bolt. It may give you a bit of a psychological advantage. For an "easy" climb, it really makes you think.
Dirty Gri Gri, or is it GiGi?

Note that the mid-point anchor on Lava Falls is located OUTSIDE and right of the "lava tube". My partner missed the anchor and kept going till he ran out of rope. THAT turned out to be a fun adventure.

Courtright offers many domes with clean slab climbs, stiff sport routes, easy clip and go routes, and a few trad climbs to keep things interesting. It's like Tuolumne without the crowds. Shhhhh, don't tell anyone!

Topo showing A Little Nukey (5.9PG13). I would give this route 5 (out of 5) stars. There are a total of 6 pitches. I would recommend this route for a competent 5.9 leader. A few spots seem just a bit runout but nothing too severe. Note - the Moser topo in the Sequoia Kings Canyon Guide shows pitch 2 going right of the roof. Some creative trickster has now moved the bolts so it goes straight over the roof (5.9). Actually an improvement in the quality of the climb. Be sure to bring lots of long slings (and biners) for the upper pitches. You'll want Tri-cams for the "holes pitch". Plan on about 5 to 6 hours from car to car. I would say the climb is definitely 5.9, not 5.9-.

To find the start of A Little Nukey (5.9), look for the obvious "shield" above you. You should be directly below or slightly right of the shield. The first bolt is a bit high (PG13) but not runout. If your first bolt looks really high, you're probably on an adjacent climb. The start is partway down a slope.

Photo showing the "cat walk" prior to the rap. It's short, easy walk to get to the rap station. First rap is 100'. Second rap is about 200'. I suspect you could do the 2nd rap at 100' and downclimb the rest on ledges to the right of the rap line. Careful not to rap off the end of your rope!

Topo showing pitches 5 through 15 of the Royal Arches Route (5.7). A true classic. Most of the route is clean and pretty straight forward. Just follow the chalk, fixed gear, and other climbers. Although it can get crowded, it's a worthwhile climb.

Tollhouse Traverse (5.5) and 5.7 option. Lots of protection and even (GASP!) bolts next to the crack if you're having trouble with the trad pro. Perhaps the best 5.5 in the country.
