This is a good route on excellent rock. Unfortunately the crux start demoralizes many would-be climbers. Begin with a beautiful set of heavily chalked pockets that are unfortunately much more thin and slopy than they appear from the ground. Once you are 3 feet off the ground the pockets improve dramatically and the climbing eases. This is the first opportunity to clip the first bolt, so a stick clip is recommended. More good pockets lead to a horizontal break, then a short thin section that leads to a sea of unusual nubbins and small chickenheads. Follow the steepening wall to the anchor.
