Comments: Nasty approach, stellar climb, no snakes (April 6th). Next time, I'm taking gaiters and a plank to plow the man-eating shrubbery. Awesome rock, fantastic views, great pro, comfy belays - what more is there to ask for... oh yeah, fewer bushes. No fixed anchors.

P1 is a great warm up.
P2 is a bit of a sandbag with a pack on ~5.10a/b. (edit to emphasize it felt a little harder with a day-pack on)
P3 is as good as it gets.
P4/5 -it has to end somehow...

Descent - yeah, more b... more >>

Comments: The third bolt (not a cold shut) on this route is terribly placed, loading the biner over a bulge , and opening the gate with little force. Falling on the third bolt would not be advised. There are many options for small gear near the third bolt until the bolt is moved.
