3 Star route on 2 star rock. Don't judge the route by the initial rock, it gets better about 15 feet up. Great pumpy route that requires moves that will help expand your bag of tricks.
Moves through tricky side-pulls, under-clings and laybacks for the first 45 feet. Crux comes 10 feet before a large roof at the half way point- small edges, gaston and bad feet lead to a big reach.
Pull the roof and head up large huecos for an other 45 feet. Don't let your guard down too early and don't pump out.
I recommend a helmet at least for your belayer the rock is a little suspect and couple thin flakes are found on the route, so don't yard to hard on them.
Route is located on the west facing cliff beneath the adventure climb. The route is the line on the right. (The route to the left is "Sticks and Bones" 5.11d)
Access the route by scrambling up the steep hillside to the right of the rappel wall or walk around the left of the formation and follow the trail that climbs up the backside.
13 bolts to chain anchors.

super fun, long, and sustained. It has a few big moves, and the rock is crap in some places, but I did find multipule no hands rests and thought it was rather easy for the grade. If it saw more traffic it would be a classic for sure.
