Start below bolt and go over bolt and straight up using small hand holds above bolt. From first ledge go straight up over bolts. When get to cave, use left side of cave only, stay to immediate right of bolts. Climb over the bolts at the end, can use arete.

This was a great 5.9 route from top to bottom. A bit of a crux near the second to last clip before the rings.
Be careful clipping the final bolt before the rings I took a fall while clipping and hit the ledge below the previous clip. I didn't hit it very hard but both feet slammed into the ledge on the long fall.
Other than that none of the other clips seemed to pose much risk outside of the normal falling risk you take anytime you lead sport. It was a quick fun route and great for a aspiring 5.9 sport leader to get some laps in on.

My daughter noticed some small loose rocks on ledges one and two, mostly on the left side of the route.
