Near classic! This route is on some of the most featured rock of the area.
BEWARE- there is a beehive in the dihedral around 10 feet to the right, you can hear them from the ground. I wouldn't deem it unclimbable, but when I climbed it, they frequently landed on me, although never stung. Regardless, it definitely made it a little harder to enjoy the route for what it is. So, aside from the listed gear above, consider a bee suit.

This route is the VERY BEST at the grade . A leader here gets steep gator skin all the way that takes excellent pro. Bees in the corner buzz loudly ........ about 15 ft away .........beware?

This could be the best 5.8 single pitch route on the planet, maybe....

Even in October we still heard a constant humming from the dihedral on the right....
Not wanting to get stung, we moved a bit further left to use both the thin crack and gator skin, while the smiles on our faces kept getting bigger and bigger the higher we climbed! What a blast!

This is an amazingly awesome line. I can't believe I'm calling it 5.8, but somehow, I think it really is. Beware though, this whole area is kinda chossy, the last 15 feet of this route climbs a huge, hollow flake. The route next door lost a HUGE block the same day that nearly almost killed a dude. Still, a f***ing great line. Steep, varied, exciting, exposed, cerebral - can't say enough good things about it.
