This climbs the left side of the first wall you come to. It is long, and it protected by 7 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

This is an easy 5.7 if you move a couple feet left from the third bolt - this puts you pretty wide, but you can bounce off a ledge from almost every other bolt on this silly route. So it's just par for the course. Aug 8, 2017

Definitely a 5.8 with a 5.10a crux. The 5.9 just to the left is far easier the entire way. Jul 7, 2014

Crux hold broke off above the big ledge back in 2008. A one move .9+/.10a now. Jun 20, 2014

No longer 5.8 after some holds above the ledge broke off. Jun 17, 2013

Not the coolest thing I have climbed, the move after the ledge sucks and the bolt was pretty loose. I brought the wrong size ratchet from my car and couldn't tighten it. Sep 14, 2010

Quick climb. Not too much happening after the bulge, but still fun to do. The bulge is a three move sequence, or go left for an easier way up. May 8, 2010
Did every route here. All of us thought the bulge bit was the hardest moves on the entire wall. 5.8???? Maybe a big flake broke off or something.

Silly route all in all. Aug 17, 2009

I agree with Bowe. Not much point to this one. Jun 27, 2008

This is a bizarre and meaningless route. It may wander up the easiest path but is far from a decent line. The third bolt protects a fall onto a ledge but without some serious short-roping I doubt the bolt would help.

My recommendation is to skip it and climb "I Can Hear You Now" - a great 5.9...
