This is a great 10a warm up climb on solid rock.

Just a heads up. I was out here yesterday and watched a climber fall on this one as he was going for the third bolt. Given the position of the belayer and the height above the last bolt, he actually hit the belayer before being "caught" by the rope. There were no serious injuries. Be careful on this one - the hardest move (IMO) is through this section between the second and third bolt.

I haven't found anyone that agrees with me, but I thought the crux was making the moves getting up to the fourth bolt (not between 2 and 3).

Fun climb and a great lead. Getting in a position to clip 3rd bolt was interesting and sketchy as you can still easily hit the deck from that height. If you are a solid 5.10 climber, the 4th bolt will be difficult as you will be fatigued from the sustained climb but the last push to the bolts is pretty straight forward.
