Description 

This line ascends principally low end difficulty terrain with a short crux. Start up a blunt arete on very easy terrain past a chopped stump and chopped bush past 4 bolts to a ledge. Find a brief crux above this ledge. Continue up on indistinct terrain. At one point you will see a cluster of bolts on the left, ignore these. Pop over an easy bulge/roof on jugs to a 2 bolt anchor with Mussy hooks.

Note the gouges on the tree to the left.

This is on the lean side of a star.

Others have provided a name for this, Reunion. This may have been climbed in the 1980s.

Location 

This is the leftmost route on the NW aspect of this small crag.

Protection 

9-10 bolts, although you could accidentally clip 3-4 more bolts just left or right of this line.

Fun route (must have cleaned up in the past few years?) with a very brief crux. Having said that, the bolting leaves something to be desired. If you've got gear with you, grab the Aliens or equivalent and some nuts and skip the first four (or more!) bolts. Solid placements over very easy climbing.
