This is between the 1st and 2nd bolt (there are only 3). I found it useful to move right and back to the left to clip the 2nd bolt.

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.
