Circle, Square, and the Triangle

This is a inviting looking bolt line just right of the ??/Luhr's Route aka Right Dihedral. It shares the same start. It is slopey, slabby, face climbing with modern bolts. With traffic, this route will change. It has a 3 bolt anchor and a 160 foot rappel. You might reach the belay of ??/Luhr's Route aka Right Dihedral. This route seems out of place in the desert.
Addendum: I included the guidebook rating for the route. It felt a touch stiff to an average climber.
15 quickdraws and something for the anchors.

Very thin slab route. Definitely at least a 5.10b if climbed the day after rain. The sand on the rock makes smearing a very delicate process. Also, be sure to bring enough draws (probably at least 13) and there is no good anchors for a single rope rap, so bring two cords. Last few bolts kinda run out at the top makes it a very exciting summit.

I think the route is pretty hard for 5.9, and that's not just after a rain. The number of moves with climbing at the 5.9 level is significant, and there were a few cruxes that seemed harder. Perhaps this was a poor warm-up to the area, or perhaps I was not climbing well, but I and my partner (both at least solid 5.10 climbers) found this route to be an insecure challenge. Although the pace or nature of the route changes a few times along the way it never really lets up. Fun and challenging!

We only went to the lower anchor (1 pitch) of this route. Found it to be a very thoughtful execution on my partners part (he was leading). Once in the grey band near the pitch's end, very few handholds, mostly smearing.

Very fun route, balancy and thin at times. Solid 5.10- in my opinion.

Just 8 bolts to a solid two bolt anchor at about 90 feet. Fun slab climbing and much easier than the three to the left.
