Route ascends a steep ramp through three bolts creating some fun but awkward moves. It then heads straight up through 3 bolts to a two bolt anchor. A 5.11 R extension is possible by continuing from the anchors through the sandy "gutter" and ending on the chains for kingpin.

If you aren't confident on the intro moves you can easily climb just above the route up and clip the first bolt. I watched someone take fall after slipping on the first move. They were luckily using a spotter which saved them from a nasty trip down the hill. Sep 3, 2009

The start is harder than it looks and constitutes the crux. The remainder of the route has thought provoking moves. Reasonably good rock and probably the best route at the Bowling Alley. Jul 2, 2013
