This sport climb starts to the right of Wheat Thin. You can start from the upper ledge or from the dirt. Well protected face and slab climbing is the name of the game. A good climb to do while waiting in line for the nearby trad classics. Enjoyable moves and position...
Enjoying the last sun of the day...

I believe 9 draws plus two for the anchors. A high first bolt and well-spaced bolts in the easier ground. I believe between 2 and 3 was the worst, but not runout. A really nice line with great moves. The brown face in the middle just keeps coming at you. Would get 4 stars if the climbing was like that all the way. The finish almost spat me off as I was clipping the chains. Well worth climbing.

If you like thin face climbing you'll like this one. A good route that is probably harder than it looks.

One of the few routes I've done at the City that seemed overclimbed: polished, greasy. Maybe it was just the day, but felt stiff for the grade. I won't rush back to it.

Fun lead. The middle slab has some technical moves with crimper edge hand holds and makes you think.

Precise smears and crimpy side pulls on the right move you through the crux.
