This short route has one committing hard sequence just after the second bolt, launching into tricky bulge moves from an undercling. After this, a much easier challenge gets you to the anchors. I've heard some climbers hate this route (and would probably give it a bomb). For myself, I think a one star minus or 1/2 star is fitting as I liked the challenge of the one hard sequence.
Starts upslope from the second platform/landing on the trail up Shipwreck, just above the start for Purple Aces.
Bolts (aprox. 4) and Rap Anchors.

Odd that this is so bad, I thought it looked like a lot of fun. Thanks for the heads up.

This thing isn't bad. It's just so short that it's hard to call it good. fun moves but it really is just a bolted boulder problem. Worth a burn at least once for sure.
