Description 

The first route you come to. Thin smears up the first bolt, easier to #2, then the fun begins as you move right to join up with Assembly Line. Once there you climb up an easy roof and then finish easy.

Protection 

2 bolts at the top plus 8 draws for the climb. A couple of runners would do no harm.

There are actually 8 bolts on the route. This route joins up with Assembly Line, at it's 3rd bolt.

I love this route. The traverse to the right is THIN. Don't go too high before you go right.

Very slippery and worn in spots, but that's probably why it's a 5.10.

Not bad til the traverse -- 4th clip is pretty tenuous

No longer the 1st route on the wall. Now the second route. Well worth doing for the funky, tenuous traverse. Like the 5.7s, this route can confound gym climbers.
