Low-angled slab leads up to a bulge (crux) which is pulled using face holds and the arete. After the second bolt continue up the slabby arete past two more bolts to join The Energy Blues for it's last three bolts.



7 bolts, anchors (shared with The Energy Blues)
Slings are helpful on some of the bolts to cut down on rope-drag and protect the rope from running over any rough edges.

Climbed this again today and it's still 5.7, maybe a little trickier than normal but not 5.11 unless you avoid using the arete out right. Feb 12, 2012

Yeah, I was freaking out on this thing, it felt real hard until I found the left hand side pull over the top of the buldge at the 2nd bolt. For sure 5.7 unless you are short, then it might be a little harder. Feb 13, 2012

Had the pleasure of climbing this on way it's 5.7. More like 5.9+ crux move to make 2 second bolt. Other parties there agreed it was no where near 5.7 too.

I think the rating in the book is misleading and thus prompted me to post this opinion for moderate leaders. Oct 21, 2013

I went to Schoolhouse with a few beginners yesterday and agree that the crux of this route seemed to be much harder than 5.7. Jan 6, 2014

I practiced placing small stoppers in the cracks along this route. Feel like it could have been almost left as a trad route with just the first two bolts. May 31, 2016
