Fun sustained slabby face climbing route. Start up on fairly easy ground past the first two bolts to a nice rest under the roof. Hit the devious crux pulling the roof at the third bolt, (draw can be a reach to hang). From here it stays continuous for the next few bolts before easing off before the anchors.
No spiders this time around, but beware in the past I have had encounters with hoards of Daddy Longlegs in the pockets, bumping up the grade a bit.
This route gets a 10b in the original line topos, but our group decided it was closer 10d.
Route #4 on Monomaniac's topo's. Second route right of the prominent arete Texas Twister.

I found all of the moderate routes I did at LCC to sandbagged (and all the hard routes were soft--how's that for ego stroking!). For the topos I provided, I adjusted the grades (based on my opinion) for the routes I've done, which ufortunately isn't very many. If the topo has a questioin mark by the grade, I definately haven't done it, but there are other routes on the topos that don't have question marks that I also have not done. In that case, I got the grade from someone I talked to who had done the route.

Beta: Crux is at the third bolt. Clip the 3rd, and you can step down into a good rest before starting the business. Work back up and pinch a chockstone that sits back in a large pocket with your right. Set Right foot on a nob about 2 feet below, look for the skids. Left hand goes up to a triangle shaped dish. Right hand goes over to some chirps. Bump up your feet. Left hand has a nice three finger pocket. Then fire up to the jugs by the 4th. The rest is 5.8.

No spiders this time around. Great rock and fun moves, with a devious crux around the third bolt that detracts somewhat from the climbing.
