This is a fun, short trad climb just to the left of Joint Venture. Rolofson calls it 5.8; Rossiter 5.7. Regardless, it follows the obvious crack/dihedral up to a set of anchors you can easily see from the base of the cliff. The protection is good, the climbing is fun. A nice change of pace from the more rigorous bolted routes on this lower cliff.
Set of cams up to 3.5 will work fine, and you can add a set of stoppers too. Smaller cams at the start were helpful. Bolted anchors at the top from which you can rap.

Fun route with great pro and positive edges all of the way to the top. Well worth the effort if you brought trad gear. An easy way to set up a top rope on Joint Venture.

I didn't see anything resembling 5.8 on this climb, quite unremarkable. Maybe if you hauled your rack up and everything else was already being climbed you could get on this route.

Short but fun. It is easier than Crack Corner (the other trad climb just to the left of it) in my opinion.
