Climb pillar, then step to main face at slightly chossy section. Head up the steep face after this.

Well protected but the undercling section (3rd bolt maybe) has a bit of gravel at the feet. Just as I was yelling down for my belayer to watch for rocks....there one went. Steep and pumpy with only the 1 choss section lower.
Apparantly this route orginally was run-out and superchoss. Most of which has been cleaned up with traffic and 6 bolts added to the current 12 bolts with Mussy Hooks anchor.

This is a good route that may change if you pull off a kinda loose and large key undercling at mid height.

Excellent, well protected endurance warm up route. Compares to Valley 5.8 in difficulty.

^Not sure about the person down grading and adding a PG13 to a route not even 100' with 12 bolts^
The only thing PG13 about this route might be for the belayer.
In any case, this was a fun route. Certainly more pumpy than the climb to the right. Nothing particularly hard here, just a lot of the same movement.

Not PG 13 if you don't fall. Might be worse if you do in the wrong place. I would not want to fall on 2 of the bolts in the pillar especially making the move right of it into the chossy section. Also the crux is making a move back left, you blow that clip and you just might land right on top of the pillar.

Definitely agree with the pg-13; amount of bolts doesn't matter if you can still fall on a pillar.
I have never felt great about this as a lead.
