To find this route, locate the most annoying cat-claw thorn bush in the park and try to get aroudn it and onto the wall (physical crux). While climbing, remember that the complete lack of pro on the route means you'd fall into it if you pealed off (mental crux).

Probably over rated for the grade. Likely 5.7

Fun solo with the crux at the bottom.
