Description 

RC.com says 5.7, but I don't think so at all. This is 5.8 if you stay direct and don't wander right of the boltline to get up and right of the 3rd bolt. A decent line with a solid crux around the 3rd bolt leads to easier climbing afterwards. Start on some good face holds to a blank section that will keep you on your toes. Then a casual stroll on lower quality rock to the anchors.

Location 

Located just right of Raised by Sasquatch at the Contact Zone. This up the hill and right of the first routes encountered from the parking lot.

Protection 

5 bolts and anchors.

Bring an alpine draw for the 4th bolt, it will greatly reduce rope drag. Also, be weary of of the larger holds that you use to clip the anchors, some are loose.
