Twenty feet off the road, and enticingly steep, this handsome route begs to be climbed every time you drive by.
Make some pocket moves past two huge watermelon sized cobbles to the crux which involves a bomber kneebar, and some bad slopers.
Since this route is short, and it's very difficult to clip the last bolt, an attentive belay is required to keep a falling climber from hitting the ground.
The obvious chalked up line next to the National Forest sign. Since the river runs directly below this route, it might be difficult/impossible to climb this during the high water season.
Quickdraws are required. The anchors have carabiners. A kneepad is useful, and a 50 meter rope will very easily get you back to the ground.

This is a good route. Despite it's closeness to the road, Captain Bullet is in an aesthetic setting.
