Description 

Climb OK moves with rest ledges between them past 5 bolts to a set of anchors at the top. Clipping the anchor seemed to be the crux but i grabbed a root that someone had dug up so that made the clipping better.

Over all a not too memorable climb. In my opinion you would be much happier on Cafe Au Lait (5.7) 40 feet to the left.


Location 

Currently the far right route at the parking lot wall. Just before you get to the big gully all the way right.


Protection 

5 bolts to ring anchors.

The guidebook had this listed as a 5.5, but I'd say the 5.7 consensus here is much more accurate. Wasn't much of a fun climb, my girlfriend lead it looking for something nice and easy, found it wasn't a 5.5, and also had to take a stick up poking out of her chalk bag to clear the cobwebs ahead of her!

I agree it is without a doubt harder than 5.5, and the route is forgettable, it is worth doing once but after that I will not be making any special trips to get on it again.

This was my first outdoor sport lead in over a year, and I was looking for something relatively easy and straightforward. I wouldn't do it again, but it was exactly what I was looking for.

Pretty good slab climbing and some interesting moves at the top. If you miss the hidden jug after traversing right(which might have been the cause for the 5.7 ratings) you make it harder. Slightly dirty at the top, but I didn't see any cobwebs. Seemed dry enough when I did it in mid-october. Not a particularly good route, but a good warm-up.

I found this to be a fun route. Climbed it for the first time today since it's usually wet. Had a 4 year old with us so we needed a low grade route and went for this one. It's lousy for short people, but otherwise was worthwhile. Sufficiently complex and thoughtful for the grade, I'm not sure you'd find another 5.5-5.6 route that keeps your attention quite the same way. It's no classic, but if you haven't climbed it and its dry, then you should give it a go.
