I only did this one because my friend left my water bottle on the shelf above it, but after climbing it, I am glad she did! The climb has really good hands and might be one of my 5.8 favorites.

Length is approximately 30'. Basically plumbline in a corner. Depending on how you feel like protecting it, you could also get away with 3 #3 Camalots and various stuff for the anchor (I used a #4 C4, a #2 C4, and a nut).

Super short but a really fun route. Might feel harder than 5.8 as the start is kinda bombay, so you have to yard on jams and get those feet up. Lots of anchor options.

Walk south to find rap slings under a huge block on that ledge. From the start ledge, get down via Flying Buttress or maybe Etude.
