Low-angled slab leads up to a bulge (crux) which is pulled using face holds and the arete. After the second bolt continue up the slabby arete past two more bolts to join The Energy Blues for it's last three bolts.
Right of Schoolhouse Rock .

Climbed this again today and it's still 5.7, maybe a little trickier than normal but not 5.11 unless you avoid using the arete out right.

Yeah, I was freaking out on this thing, it felt real hard until I found the left hand side pull over the top of the buldge at the 2nd bolt. For sure 5.7 unless you are short, then it might be a little harder.

Had the pleasure of climbing this on Sunady....no way it's 5.7. More like 5.9+ crux move to make 2 second bolt. Other parties there agreed it was no where near 5.7 too.
I think the rating in the book is misleading and thus prompted me to post this opinion for moderate leaders.

I went to Schoolhouse with a few beginners yesterday and agree that the crux of this route seemed to be much harder than 5.7.
