Description 

From Barlett: "Start in black-stained seams and cracks 10 feet right of Tulip and go up and left to meet that route at its bolt."

Moving left to the bolt seemed somewhat contrived, though clearly appropriate on lead. On toprope, it seemed more natural to either move straight up into the top of Eschar, or to stay between the bolt on the left and the crack on the right.


Protection 

One bolt (well above the 5.10a friction crux)

Lots of webbing to sling a boulder above the route, or some smallish gear to use a crack in the rock above the route for a toprope anchor.

Not much harder than "Baby Point Five".

A difficult and almost totally unprotected friction climb. Not worth risking one's neck leading, when a toprope will serve nicely. Seemed about 5.9+/5.10a or 5.10-. One star, but not really a bomb.

I thought this was a super fun TR! Some fun and challenging friction climbing. Haven't done much Josh friction but 10a/b seems right to me. If you have a about 10-15 meters of webbing or an extra rope you can run it around a giant boulder above the route for an easy TR.
