Slab climbing with a few thin sections where good balance and steady feet are needed.
The first bolt is a good way up there (however, the climbing to the first bolt is easier than the rest of the climb). The rest of the protection is good.
Note that this route is not the same as Leave It To Beaver, which wanders farther right before coming back left again.
This route is at the right side of the bolted routes on the Red Slab. It has the highest first bolt of any of the Red Slab sport routes so it is fairly obvious where it starts.
5 bolts to double chain anchors. One of the chains is a little loose at the bolt. Easily top roped.

There are plenty of opportunities to place gear before reaching the first bolt (~20 feet off the deck). However, I didn't bother placing any pro the second time around. The climbing is a lot more interesting above the first bolt.
