Go up a gully on the right side of Wizard Rock to a short steep corner with a black streak leading to a lower-angle slab. The route starts in this corner, near a tree stump.
Stem the corner past two bolts and step left (crux) onto the slab. Fun slab climbing (5.7 to 5.8) leads to the anchors.
8 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. The route is 70' long.
Looking down at the slab from the anchor.

Nice climbing, very similar to the route on Avalon, Incline Club. This felt fairly easy for for 5.9 though, I thought maybe one 5.8 move.

This certainly is not 5.9. It has a 5.8 move but, only one.
