A great place for an easy day of climbing

Description 

Conglomerate climbing on rounded cobbles. The crux is right at the start, the rest is easier than 5.9.

The route is the 2nd-to-the-leftmost line on the second corner of the creek after the first bridge (starting from the parking northeast on Hwy 33).

Protection 

5 bolts, chain anchors

Arguably, easier than its 5.8 neighbor. Very well protected crux.
