Climb the rightmost line of bolts on the lower section of Mayhem Cove.
Being the only existing 5.9 in Mayhem Cove, this is a great warmup, A tricky interesting move gets you up over the bulge about 20 feet up. Climbing after the first bulge is pretty straighforward, but well worth the climb. This route is pretty pumpy for a 5.9.
It's a fairly long ways to the first bolt, but the climbing up to this point is very easy, so I didn't give it an "s" rating.
5 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor.

I think these are almost all Dano routes. Look for the stamp on the first bolt on this crag, Dan used to often put the rating on them!

Watch for 12" square loose rock (had an X in chalk on it when we were there 7/21/12) near the bulge. Looks like it would make for good foot or hand hold but also like its about to go. There are several other hold options there so not hard to avoid it. Just something to be aware of.

Anyone know the name of a 10- a climb or two to the left of this? If you look at the picture, you can see the right arm of someone climbing it. Thanks!

Sean, I'm guessing the climb you are referring to is DWI (11b). It skirts the roof to the left of Car Jacker
