DescriptionThe bottom is easy slabby, but some people may get a little freaked by the distance between bolts. The top is easy, whith the crux move getting over a small roof near the top. There are left and right variations at the crux that finish at different spots (and probably require a bit of trad gear for the rest of the route). You can easily split the route into two pitches with a decent ledge and tree about 50 feet from the bottom. Makes for a good intro to real multi-pitch climbing. Good stances for clipping all the bolts.
LocationThe route tops out on the ridge trail, from which you can hike back down or rappel. A 60-meter rope is too short to rappel from the bolts but a 70-meter rope will work (it'll be close, though, so be sure to knot the ends). You could also do a 2-pitch rappel using the ledge and tree that's about 50 feet above the base.
ProtectionUPDATE: AS of 4/23/2017, according to Nick Lieby, this route now has a 2-bolt anchor and rap rings.
You can climb it using just the 7 khaki-colored bolts, or you can protect the crux move with a ".5-"2 cam (I used a yellow #2 BD Camalot C4). The rest of the route is either well-bolted or easy slabs with nowhere to put trad pro even if you had it. Clip the first bolt from the ground before you start climbing.
