Pretty unique position over the road. May 2015.

Description 

Good, cruiser climbing up for about 30 feet to where the wall steepens. The closely spaced bolts protect this steeper section perhaps because it's a crux or perhaps because the rock the bolts are set in isn't the greatest quality.
Gain a big horizontal crack and pull up onto the upper face of better rock. Fun, airy climbing above to the anchor.

Location 

The leftmost route on the main wall. Lower or rap with a 60m rope. Not sure a 50m rope would make it.

Protection 

12 bolts and a two bolt anchor with chains.

60m rope required to lower if you plan on setting up a toprope. Doubt a 50m would suffice. Definitely a very fun climb.
