DescriptionI thought "Alberta" was a pretty good sport climb, for Johns Wall at least. Some older guides list this as "The Face" at 5.9+, but a 5.9 climber will get his or her butt kicked.
It's a boulder problem to the first bolt (the landing is sandy still some timid leaders might consider stick-clipping). Just before you reach the 2nd bolt is a really weird and unnerving mantle move. After this, head up to the right on small edges & pockets, with the difficulty easing toward the top.
