Thanks Bob, nice little addition to the area. Makes for a good warm up although maybe it was the heat....or my lack of skill but I heard some whining around the 2nd bolt just to realize it was coming from me.
One of my favorite secret areas..........never see anyone out there although there was evidence of summer chalk. As a bonus we saw a Big Horn on the formation off to the north late in the day just watching us.

Lots of interesting footwork. Pretty intimidating to lead if you haven't been on friction for a while.
Height-dependence of the move like five feet off the ground:
I'd say if much less than 5ft 8inch with normal reach, that move is around 10b (seemed harder than any move on two of the 10a pitches I did later that same day).
If much less than 5ft 7inch, then the move is much harder than 10b.
But maybe could do it anyway with Aid: grab the draw placed on the first bolt, or hang a couple of slings down from it to provide a foothold.

|Fun climb. The start is height dependant. The rock is very slick here! Worth doing if in the area.|

|Great route, great water polished rock. I found it to be considerably easier than Electralux.|

|Great climb, the start is very height dependent. Being 5'4 I had to smear my feet with a little jump to the ledge. Good holds slightly right of the 2nd and third bolts.|
