Ryan about to conquer the route
The crux is in the mid-section which thins out quite a bit. The most difficult of the 5.8's at French's. Seems to be the least popular 5.8 as well. May be a bit dirty at the bottom (dirt, moss, pine needles). Eases up quite a bit at the top with some big blocky holds.
Just downhill/to the left of Alpha Centuri and uphill/right/around the corner from Tin Tangle/Do it Again. See Ron Horton's "Weekend Rock Oregon" for a topo.
9 bolts; chain anchors at top.

If I remember correctly, you belay this route from just below the last reinforced belay platform wall on this side of the rock (I believe the last reinforced platform lines up with Alpha Centauri).
