This is a fun route as either a first or last climb of the day. Since it's at the terminus of the trail, access is easy. It offers fun climbing on big holds.
The route is easily identifiable as the right-facing dihedral right in the middle of the Practice wall.
Easily top-roped. If you want to lead it, a nice variety of gear will fit, however, it would probably tend to be on the bigger side. Two bolts serve as anchors.

Fun rout to get your blood moving. Found if you climb right the grade increases a little bit (nothi.g harder than a 6) Watch out for squirrels.

Fun and simple route! Heed the advice above!! I was free solo'ing this route as a cool down after a long day and about mid way up, I turned around to talk to some people on the deck and before I knew it a huge squirrel dashed out of the hole my left hand was in and over my arm and up the cliff face!!! Whow! Super surprised me and nearly made me loose my grip!!! Besides the wild squirrel village you climb through this route is pretty fun, and mellow!

Essentially a really tall highball boulder problem, if you are so inclined! I can see it. (But I did not do it...)
