Lone Johnny & His 10-Inch Neck
Puss in Boots, Heidi Newland, and
Zorro, Mark Wat...
As you face the wall, the climb furthest on the left.
A fun, thoughtful opening sequence can be avoided by approaching the first bolt from the left. Cruise the rest of the face to the anchors.
4? bolts + anchor (2 cold shuts?)

This is a fun route, worth doing. The direct start option is probably more of a 5.9 upto the first bolt. After that, much easier.

Great route, especially for first timers... I am yet to take someone climbing for the first time that couldn't make it up! I agree to the direct start being more like 5.9! seems to get a bit tougher each year as the ground erodes away! The crack to the left of the route may be an easier alternative for beginners!
