Description [Suggest Change]
This route is pretty exciting for a roadside 5.8 sport climb. Get to the upper ledge by either climbing one of the lower pitches or hiking up and around. Walk out on the ledge and have your belayer anchor in at the bolts. Traverse out to the right all the way to the arete. DO NOT knock any rocks off or you could have a serious lawsuit on your hands. At this point you will have quite the view, and the cars racing by directly under you make it a little intimidating. Climb the arete past four bolts, then run it out to the anchors or bring a few small/medium pieces to protect the easy top section.
Location [Suggest Change]
Starts on the upper ledge next to "If the Fall Doesn't Kill You, a Car Will." A single rap lands you right back at the belay.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Four bolts and optional gear for the last 20 feet. The climbing after the last bolt is only about 5.5 so you may not want to bother with gear.
