Description

Slabby face climbing with ample protection. Fun moves: chances for high steps, hand and foot matches, hidden fingertip pockets, tiny edges and nubs for the toes. A more sustained challenge than other Safe Harbor 5.9s like Adopted Son, Tonga and SH Direct.

I went with Eric Horst's grade of 5.9+, though a Rock and Ice article (from around the 1990s?) called it a 5.10a. Hard 9 or easy 10 are both accurate enough for the subjective YDS.

Protection

5 bolts to an anchor at the bottom of the rock outcrop on top (where Hydroman ends above and to the right).
