Description 

This route is described in the Mayr guide as 5.9* - Rock quality is suspect, 1st bolt is ridiculously low and to in my opinion didn't have a single .9 move on it. Saying it's .7 is generous.

It does however have sunny exposure and no approach. Bring a ropebag as the belay is dusty and dirty.

Location 

South facing wall - furthest route on the left (while facing the wall) starts in a dirty narrow slot in front of a hook bush. First bolt is 4' from the ground and painted red.

Mayr guide - route 819

Protection 

6 bolts to ring anchors (which share with "power puff")

I thought this was a fun route and didn't have any issue with the quality of rock. Maybe most of the loose rock is now gone?

This climb was fun when I lead to the left of bolts. It seemed more a 5.8 on left side. Right side was much easier, 5.6-5.7
