BETA PHOTO: I Love My Marine (left) and Direct start (right)
Start up featured rock passing two bolts and a good knob tie-off to reach a slanting crack (.75 - 1" piece) before heading up and right to a fixed lost arrow piton at the base of the upper slab. Clip the pin and then pass a straight-in crack (1.5 - 2.5" piece) to reach a final bolt just before the anchors.
Fun climbing with a good variety of moves throughout it's length make this a worthwhile route if in the area.
Between Banquet and Lunch.
3 bolts, 1 FP, a couple pieces 1-2.5", slings for tieoffs and a 2 bolt anchor/rap

This is a very fun climb, but a bit harder than 5.5. The top slab has a 5.6 move before the bolt, and climbing past the first bolt is 5.7, maybe stuff broke off. Good gear is available between the bolts. Great two bolt anchor, a recommended route.

"This is not a sport route"
My realization trying to clip the final bolt 20 feet above an old piton.

5.7 at the first bolt, then mostly easier, with an occasional 5.5-5.6 move above.
