This has solid stone and really fun climbing. It is a tad run out in a couple of spots, particularly to the anchors. That being said, this route has been the first 5.9 lead for at least two climbers, with no complaints from either one. No FA beta is available, so I've taken the liberty to give the route a name more interesting than "un-named". If anyone has FA beta, let me know.


Hike left from Natural Born Drilla along the cliff base. Walk past Evil Empire, and scramble up and over the pedestal. The Un-named 5.9 is about 20 feet left of Drilla From Manilla and Snail Trail.


7 bolts, hangers and anchors are welded cold shuts.
