Plenty of good features on this long, straight forward climb. Would be a great first time lead for the aspiring trad climber at the city - easy climbing, sufficient places for pro, lots of options for anchor building at top.
Route is located to the right of Pluton Playground near the tree. Follow the hard to see white dyke halfway up the wall, then pick the line of least resistance. Walk off to the left or use the fixed anchors to the right of the route (says 100 feet in the Bingham guide, might consider 2 ropes for rap).
Standard rack up to size 3 camalot. Plenty of options for building an anchor at the top.

A good route for all passive gear, but you do need hexes. Thread the small window for first pro.

Enjoyed the route. The climb is closer to 130'-140' if you start at the ground, belaying where the book shows would make it about 100' though it's not a great belay location. Once at the top one will climb down about 10' to get to the chains to rappel down. My 70 meter rope with stretch made it to the bottom.
