Is this the route that you get to (if I remember correctly) by getting to the first ledge that has anchors for some climb starting from the road, and then getting thru some bushes to get to the 2nd ledge with two bolt lines?
It matches very well, but I remember it being much taller than 40'
(I sport led something similar a year ago and still don't know what :)) Mar 17, 2015

Sergey, I believe you're thinking of the main Peanut Gallery area, technically, the southeast face. This route is located somewhat to the northeast of that area, but it is part of the same formation. Kind of an obscure wall, though clearly visible from the Roadcut parking area. Unlike the area you're thinking of I don't think the northeast face gets a lot of traffic. Mar 17, 2015

I found this in guidebook and yeah, that is the route. I'll have to go back some day and double check it's 40' :) Apr 18, 2015

So I attempted to lead this route today and made it to the ramp after the second bolt. At that point there is a convenient escape ramp down and left and I succumbed to it's siren song. I then set up a toprope and realized that the remainder of the route was all there. If you can do the first move and get the first clip then the remainder of the route is well within your ability, though the second clip is a bit sketch....don't blow it. The 5.9 rating is fair, and there are a number of 5.9 sequences on the route which stays thoughtful the entire way up. There are a couple of bolts located at the top. Oct 29, 2017
