1) Never park or camp overnight at the access points.
2) Always park off the pavement, taking great care to avoid blocking the gates.
3) Clean up after your dogs. (Local climbers are finding abandoned doggie poop bags.)
4) Pack out all trash and TP, including picking up after others.
5) Use the outhouses if at all possible.
Enjoyable moves up vertical rock on mostly positive holds comprise the lower crux, but brace yourself for the dicey slab moves (5.10+) near the top of the route which can throw you off if your footwork isn't dialed.
A stellar route, and the easiest of the Tom Herbert "E" routes, all of which are excellent. This route will not only test your lock-off strength, but your slab climbing ability as well, and it's precisely that reason which makes it such a classic.
