A great 5.10a route First bolt is blown out however so we pre-clipped the first bolt on the route to the right of this one by standing on a really solid ledge and a great handhold to the right of the actual route so there was some protection before the second clip. It worked out fine without any serious extra rope drag but you might want to want the since it goes around a semi sharp spot that can be avoided if you use a longer quick draw (which we did with an Alpine Draw on the second attempt) on the first clip.
Beta on climbing the route. Don't read if you want to discover it for yourself
A fairly strait forward and simple route and the crux is at the end. The final sequence included a solid heel hook to top out at the rings. I think its a great sport lead for an aspiring 5.10 sport leader.
