I could never for the life of me figure out where this route went. It's pretty hard, depending on where you go, but only for a move or two, and there's no well-defined line. Basically, a mediocre boulder problem separated by choss below and easy climbing above.
This is another early 90s route bolted by folks who *really* wanted to climb 5.13 but couldn't find anything hard enough in WR. They ended up bolting anything with hard moves they could find, quality be damned. I don't think I've every seen anyone even attempt this (yours truly being the exception), and for good reason.

|Agreed. I got on this once and I thought it was awkward and semi-painful. Didn't bother again after that. The upper face itself is pretty though. Too bad it doesn't climb better.|
