|A great sport route that's literally one minute from the road. Starts up an easy, left-slanting crack/flake (optional pro if you feel the need) to a well bolted vertical face with crimps and delicate footwork. It finishes up a short section of perfect handcrack (again, optional pro if you desire) to sport anchors on a small ledge. For those climbing even reasonably comfortably at the grade nothing more than quickdraws are needed. Three stars out of five.|

Really fun route, and very well-bolted.
A #1 or #2 camalot before the first bolt, and I placed a green C3 and a medium nut at the top.
Crux is definitely delicate, the rest is super positive edging up the steep wall.

For the follower/2nd on blackjack
Place a .4 grey C4 at the base of the crack so that if the second falls on the lieback moves after in clipping the last bolt they don't swing far to the left and have to go up the easier left way or work hard to swing back to the bolt
