Start directly above the finish of Roadside Attraction (or NoName 5 as it's referred on this website). Great movements lead up past a few interesting sections to the top of the cliff. Interesting & varied positions make for an enjoyable pitch.

Would be a great pitch when linked with Roadside Attraction sans the 15' runout at the top. Quite dangerous (R/X) in its current state if 5.9 is your limit. The new guide (2009) calls it 10a with 5 bolts. The grade is about right, but the bolt count is off. Fun and adequately protected climbing takes you past 4 bolts and deposits you at a contrived runout on some not so positive holds. A fall off the moves to the anchor would be quite serious. Bring small to mid size nuts (2-4 Rock size) if you enjoy being ambulatory and want to continue that trend in the event of a slip.

Agreed with the rest of the crew...great protection except a 5th bolt would be nice before getting to the anchors. Overall, a fun little route to make 2 pitches with Roadside if you don't have a 70m rope. Definitely a bit dicey going up the runout of the 4th bolt to anchors though.
