BETA PHOTO: The route follows the shallow right facing dihedra...
This route is a great moderate warm-up at the dihedrals! Start right behind the tower, directly below two bolts. Climb up and bust right after the second bolt to a small ledge. There is a small pod in the ledge that takes a grey alien nicely, a 0.75 Camalot or (even better) a 1.5 Friend fits in the flare above this. Follow the ledge to the shallow right facing dihedral. A #0 C3 or stopper fits nicely in the first pod. Get a good piece then stem and lieback your way through several more pods to a hand jam. From there run it out a couple of feet to the bolt anchors.
Behind the towers and left of the cracks (bloody elbows, etc) at the dihedrals. The first bolt is roughly 8 feet off the ground and has a half pink anodized hanger.

I didn't think it was that bad. Pretty fun actually. It is a little run out true, but if you clip the bolt and move right there is gear. A couple of fun moves! Good warm-up.

Surprised to hear about run out. We thought it was pretty reasonable. Run out from the bolt to the crack or from the last piece to the chains? We wanted to add a reasonable moderate that would get climbed.

The route seems to be cleaning up and getting a bit easier with time.

Thought the bolts were well spaced, the gear was fine, if 5.9 happens to be your limit, this route might be a bit scary.
The lichen is still heavy, needs more traffic, but all key holds are free of lichen now.
