"This route lies on the south-side entrance of the first gully. It is well protected and makes a good warm-up climb. Climb the broken face past three bolts to the top-chains. It is steep and pushy but has great handholds." - Falcon Guide's 'Rock Climbing Oregon' 2006

This is a 5.7 if you find the correct holds and use them exactly right. If not it is easily a 5.9.
Protection: 3 bolts plus an anchor.

I totally agree with Richard Denker. If this is your first time on this climb, and you're feeling around for holds, it will definitely feel more like 5.9. If you can find the bomber holds right when you need them, it will be more like 5.7 to 5.8.
My 9 year old son led this climb, and my 5 year old (in the pictures) did it as well with several rests.
