According to Rock Climbing: Oregon this is a two star route. If it is typical of the Bulo Point two star routes do not bother with anything rated two star or less. Took a climber up it for her first trad climb, a mistake it is not a good example of trad climbing. Next to it is Nook and Cranny a 5.7 and it appears to be a much better trad route.

I used only three cams 2 thru 4 Camalots (four is probably the most anyone would place).
