This climb is a must do at Tollhouse. The climbing follows the right side of a giant detached flake on the Tollhouse caprock. It goes from thin to great hands till you gain the top of the flake. From here a 5.8 face move is made to top out on the caprock.
Approach by walking up to the top of Tollhouse Rock then looking over the edge to see the prow of the caprock. The prow has a single crack that runs through it angling down either side of the edge. The right side crack is Platinum Plus (5.8) while the crack around the left side of the prow is Strawberry Jam (5.10), both finish on the same 5.8 face moves to the top.

Fantastic TR with tricky exit for short people. Fun puzzle route.
TR bolts are best accessed with an anchored handline or even on belay from the flat part os the cap rocks. The edge that the TR runs over is a little sharp and merits watching. Strawberry Jam off the same anchor is very fun and of a different nature.

Great, short route. As Tim said, the mantle at the top is a bit tricky on your first go round. I would rate that move as a 5.9
