|Five and Dime Cliff
[Start] about 20' left of the start of Five and Dime at an obvious right facing corner with a crack system on the left face and another in the back of the corner. Serves as the standard warm up pitch. Great pro, mainly in the tight hands size, but will take from fingers to fist at different points. At the top, I've always went into the chimney rather than stay in the crack on the left face. Crux is about halfway up, transitioning between the crack systems with cool stemming. The chimney section will pro with hand or fist sized pieces, but is short, secure and easy.
Pro to 2.5".

If you keep on the face the climbing is really fun, but maybe a little bit harder (5.8+)? Recommended.

Very fun corner and some of the cleanest granite I've ever seen. Would love to repeat anytime.

I agree with Scotty that going direct was cool, and harder. I'd say more like a couple of 5.9 moves, but if you save a .5 and .75 it's very comfortable. Stepping right into the chimney is still fun, but doesn't seem as cool.

No anchor up top.... easy walk off, just be aware.
