Start on ledge. sustained 5.9 climbing with a slight bulge at top (could be considered the crux)
starting on ledge its the left most route.
10 bolts maybe consider taking a 1" CD for a slightly run-out section. ALSO THIS ROUTE IS 35m PLEASE TAKE NOTE! THERE HAVE BEEN ACCIDENTS HERE FROM PEOPLE FORGETTING THIS!

rating: 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a PG13
New grading is 5.10a - it's gone from 5.10a in the original guide, to 5.9, and now back to 5.10a. A great climb to finish a weekend on - looking South over the wineries to the lake, thinking about a swim and a cold bevvie. Best done with a top belay to share it with your partner. Then you can rap or walk off (North).
Only PG13 if you don't sink a cam at mid-height.
