Description 

This is a short sport line on the right side of Mountain Rose. It mostly is low 5.10 until trying to clip the anchors where the footholds disappear...making it 5.10+, perhaps.

Climb past 4 bolts where large, confident moves to the bigger holds are rewarded. Again, clipping the anchors is balancy and probably harder to for the height-challenged.

This may be the same route as "Short Sport" listed in D'Antonio's Boulder Canyon Rock Climbs, but that was listed as a 11b/c.

Location 

This is the leftmost bolted line on the right half of Mountain Rose. It ascends a blocky, vertical section near a tree.

Protection 

4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor with rings.

This is "Short Sport", what else could it be? Really, 5.10+! Wow I never thought the grade in Bob's book was incorrect at 5.11b/c. It is definitely not as hard as Steel Pulse (.11c) on these crags, so maybe I could see calling it .11b or as low as 11a/b. It is harder than Big Tuna (.11a). One thing it is not is 5.10d.
None of my partners questioned the 5.11 rating. Short but sustained for its length. Better than it looks too.
