|I found this route to be very chossy. Several holds crumbled on me. Maybe it has cleaned up since then? But I wouldn't recommend it.|

There used to be some pruned scrub oak at the starting corner. Ignore the first bolt (uncompleted project) and use gear to traverse right out of the corner to a bomb bay alcove in varnish. Pull the easy roof move and clip a bolt. Continue up the crack past 2 or 3 more bolts then traverse left to a 2 bolt anchor. Traversing right on questionable rock takes you to a project anchor.
Second pitch is 5.8 has one bolt and is on "angel food" white sandstone.
Third pitch climbs out of an alcove, move up and right to 2 bolts at a bulge, then follow cracks to the summit. That pitch is about 10b. I remember using a Red Tricam to protect one of 9 moves higher up on this pitch.
