Excellent route with two separate, but awesome parts to it. The crack down low is short, but has some pretty nice hand jams, especially for the city. May 16, 2014

This short route has a lot of good moves, though 5.8 may be more of a fair rating.
There are 6 bolts on the face above the crack. Even as one who rarely complains about too many bolts, I'd have to say that 3 or 4 bolts would have been enough to safely climb the route. Jul 11, 2008

I did it today. This route is 3 star rock for sure which is absolutely amazing considering it has been closed for a number of years. The climb is two different worlds; 1/2 5.7'ish crack to 1/2 5.9 slab. 3-4 pieces down low ranging anywhere from tcu to #2 then about 6 bolts to the chains. Another City classic to get on before it gets greazy. The crack part of this thing makes me wonder what it was like to climb Bushwhack raw?!?! Sep 11, 2006
