This pitch is a traditionally protected crack/small chimney. The climbing is of fair quality, and the rock is generally solid. It protects well with traditional gear, but you can also reach left and clip bolts on an adjacent sport-climb pitch. It would thus be a very reasonable pitch for a beginning trad leader.
Locate the route Hin-mah-too-yah-lat-kekt (AKA Chief Joseph) as described in the UINTA ROCK guidebook. There is another line of bolts to the RIGHT of Chief Joseph (Little Chief). To the immediate RIGHT of this bolt line, there is an obvious crack. This is your climb. To the right of the crack is another bolted route which is of 5.6-5.7 difficulty.
