Tyler Wheeler gets vertical on Scream Cheese.
This climb goes up the prow next to Swiss Cheese. It has a fun mix of jugs, face, and slab climbing. There is a nocticeable runout half way up the route, but the holds are good. Rap the route from chains on top. Probably one of the best 5.9 sport climbs at the City.
Bolts, chain anchor at top.

This is a superb route at City of Rocks, one of my favorites. It has great holds and sequences, culminating in a surprizing little "change of pace" friction crux near the top. Bolt placements are excellent, and the rappel anchors are right on top of Swiss Cheese. All bolts.

There is now a second set of chains at the top exclusively for this route.

I led this route and felt that it was a pretty soft 5.9. My partner, who never top-roped a 5.9 before, thought it was easier than Delay of Game! However, the mid-route runout did freak me out a bit and I had to stop to make sure I didn't miss a bolt. Overall a fun climb and good for the first-time 5.9 climber.

Great route. I didn't even notice the runout (and believe me I notice runouts). It must have been that after all the friction climbing and trad climbing the holds were so positive (and it is bolted!) it was no big deal. My crux was getting on to the slab. I just needed to high step to the last good hold and balance up. After that small pockets make it a very easy slab.

No cooler 5.9 sport route. Yes run outs between 3 and 4 but the holds are great. the crux is getting off all those big chicken heads that have spoiled you onto the whimpering slab section. But one or two tricky moves of that and the going gets good. fun fun, great combo with Skyline. Consider a belay anchor at the bottom as the stance is a little exposed.
