[Hide Comment] Don't confuse this one with the funky thing on the left (Log Jammin?). Between the first and second bolts is by far the hardest part, but the rest is fairly jug-y and obvious with good protection. 8 bolts to 2 cold shuts. Sep 17, 2012

[Hide Comment] The recent guide book of this area lists this route as a 5.9, but the start has become so polished, the current 10a rating on Mountain Project is more appropriate. Once you reach the second bolt, it's a cruise to the finish. Aug 16, 2014

[Hide Comment] Mostly 5.9, but a couple5.10 slabby/thin moves above first bolt. Enjoyable. Aug 26, 2014

[Hide Comment] 10.17.17 "Red Chili" has its own anchor now directly above the route. That funky route just to the lookers left got bolts added for a direct (safer) start and bolts added for a direct (safer) finish, making it a quality climbing experience. The 3 bolts placed by an unknown person in the middle section were left in place. 5.10b. Oct 18, 2017
