A short, juggy route up a slightly overhanging arete. Getting to and clipping the second bolt is probably the crux.
The rock is mostly solid up through the bolts and then broken and chossy past the last bolt to the anchor.
This is the right-most bolted route at The Appendage.
4 bolts to rap anchors. The anchors are quite a ways above the last bolt over some low-angled, chossy rock. Top-roping this is doable but will abrade your rope. Consider extending the anchor with some static rope.

I didn't like this climb very much. Maybe I just missed the good holds, but it felt a bit harder than 5.8 to me. The rock isn't that great.

This route will EAT your rope. I suggest topping out and walking off, or extending the anchor by six feet.

This route seams harder then a 5.8 but only if you try to rush through it. There are some really positive holds that alow you to walk up this rock face. Good warm up route ENJOY !!!
