I thought that this climb had a lot going for it.
A fairly easy start leads to classic Pocket Rocks pocket-pulling. There are a few cruxes in the first half, but they are easy to figure out and execute.
About halfway up the angle steepens and the rock gets more condense. You get to grab a mono, that's right a mono on a 5.10a, turn it, and do a long reach to a good little jug.
It's not over yet, the pump could start to creep up on a climber, and the ending could be a small fight to get to a clipping jug for the chains.
The bolts seemed to be perfectly spaced with no, crap your pants, sections.
A little over halfway across Pocket Rocks, this is on a small south-facing spire-like formation. And at the moment, it is the 4th route from the left side of the crag.
5 bolts and anchors.
