This quality route is almost all on good gray varnish. Interesting moves past thin cracks lead to a ledgy area 1/2 way up. More interesting and steeper moves up thin cracks in a flared slot lead top a ledge just below the top. Either continue up a funky thin crack (5.8/9), the chimney just right (5.9) or walk off left.
Standard rack to 2".
The ledge 1/2 way up.

A pretty fun route with interesting moves on solid rails and flakes. Pretty mellow for 5.8, I would say not harder than 5.7 at most.There is a bolted anchor on top.

Fun climbing with some interesting moves on mostly good rock, but the creaky jugs down low require some care.

Fun climbing and a great route for a leader at that level. 5.7 gym climbing that's protectable the whole way if you need it.

I had the chance to second this route. I think this was a darn impressive lead. IMO, I think a 5.7 gym climber might be in over their head on this one. This was a good route, not a top 60 as shared by a certain guidebook. The bummer for me was the rap station... I felt it to be awkward (although given they are so rare in Josh, I'll take it). A Metolius PAS wasn't the best with the anchor, would suggest a cordalette instead. Overall, a good one.

Excellent route, great warmup for the 5.10s next to it. Lots of foot holds that are not obvious at first but once discovered they make it very easy and a solid lead.

Not a move over 5.7 on this, but my partner would say not a move over 5.6. The start is steep with tricky pro, but there are great hands and feet. A fun route, but nothing to write home about.
