Reach up over the low overhang and clip the first bolt, then it's crux time! Claw your way past thin holds and long reaches to get established on the face. Clip bolt number two, and cruise to the anchors.
Jimmywood. On a ledge above the trail. Take the approach trail to the popular beginner sport route Bear Mountain Picnic. From the start of Bear Mountain Picnic, scramble left over boulders up onto the ledge system. The left-most bolted route is That Orange Hat.
4 bolts, anchor

Thought it was solid for grade. Try jamming and camming left hand in lower crack below first bolt then rock up to a good jug to clip the first bolt. Last good hold between last bolt and anchors was wet with melting water and ice on a sunny December day. Short but fun.
