This is fun stemming up a dihedral. It was bolted to make a 5.6 leader feel comfy. The most difficult move is between the last bolt and the anchors with a bolt at your waist.
As of today, this was the 7th route on the wall if you are approaching from the Cactus Cliff area walking west. From Cactus, the path starts on the left (West) from the switchback in the road just past what used to be the main Cactus Cliff parking lot.

Great to have a well-protected climb at this level at Shelf Road.
But I don't think the actual climbing deserves two stars.

This is probably one of the better routes I've seen @ Shelf to throw a brand new leader on. Except for the bottom of the route that had a little dirt from runoff, the rock is solid and there are tons of holds everywhere.
Certainly not a classic, but given the options at Shelf for learning to lead outside, it's nice that someone put a route like this up.
I also have no idea why Jeff gave this thing a PG-13 rating. If you're average height, you can literally direct aid from one bolt the next if you had to by simply pulling up on the draw.
