Decent route if in the area. Be somewhat careful on pitch 2 as a lot of the rock is kinda suspect! The anchor slings atop pitch 2 were very worn a couple years back and we left some gear there for a safe rappel. Otherwise, worth doing...once!

I had diffenent route beta...the new guide book (the one with all the pictures) said that spontaneous enjoyment was the route you had outlined in red, the unknown 5.8+. It was a good route, even though I had a little trouble getting good gear near the start of the second pitch.

I thought this route was on the buttress behind (right of the gulley) the photo and did it in 1999, along with One Hand Clapping. Both are good routes and there is a bolted anchor at the top on a nice ledge.

I found this to be a fun and at times commiting climb. Some of the rock is indeed suspect.
