Scenic Overlook route. Pretty steep wall.

Description 

The face looks sheer and vertical, but offers plenty of pockets and crimpers on closer inspection. Top out and climb through the safety railing to the applause of all the tourists at the top of the overlook.

Location 

The South face of the scenic overlook. The wall ends at the big offwidth crack on climber's right.

Protection 

2 bolt anchors at the top next to the fence.

Due to weathering and use, some important holds have broken off, so it has become harder than a 5.8 in my opinion.
