The right hand route on this wall, just as good as "The Champ." Although listed as a sport climb, one may want to bring along either a #4 friend, or a simple shoulder length sling (natural thread) to protect a slight run out beneath the last bolt.
Scramble up roots until you can reach out and clip the first bolt. Hard face moves (.10a) past 2 bolts lead to bigger holds, and then the final crux moves up and over a bulge (bolt) to the top.
Follow the trail that skirts the base of the cliff band past "Old Boys Club," "JAG," and a few other bolted lines until the trail drops steeply down to a 60 foot tall clean, steep face with two bolted routes on it.
3-4 bolts, and #4 friend or use the natural thread(probably easier)
