On par with any of the multi-pitch routes at the 82. Long, steep and thoughtful characterize this fun romp up a nice exposed buttress.
start on the left side of a 70/80 foot buttress/pillar of rock in the center of the Main Cliff. The route is unmistakeable, as bolts mark the way. Pitch one is tricky little number with some balance and faith required at the crux. Finish on a nice ledge with a 2-bolt anchor.
The 2nd pitch climbs steep rock up past an insecure block (step around it gingerly!!) to a series of delicate moves to a nice ledge with a 2-bolt anchor.
A single rap with 2 60 meter ropes with get you back to the ground.
Center of the Main Cliff Wall on the left side of an obvious buttress of rock.
10 QDs, plus some small nuts if you want to avoid the runouts.

It's awesome you've been getting up to Bone! I haven't been in years. Paul and I also did a great 2 pitch 5.10 just left of Family Picnic called "Fathers Day". It's adequately protected with a mix of gear (bring some small wires) and bolts, and very fun. Highly recommended. It has its own anchor on top of P1, but shares the "Family Picnic" top anchor.
