Difficult, bouldery roof start. The rest of the route is fun, balancy, crimpy low 5.10 climbing. The crux is getting the first clip...that's the only reason I rated it a pg-13. If you have a stick clip, it's not pg-13. A fall before the first clip could result in a twisted ankle. 3rd clip to anchor is run-out but fairly easy 5.9ish climbing.
It's off on it's own... a ways south (maybe 50 yards)of M&M squared/ Mr. Krinkle on the cliff band nearest the parking lot. There is a new top-rope-only route which Joshua Kitchen is working on just south of it.
3 bolts to anchor. A sling is needed for the anchor.
