Primal is a well protected, warmup, sport route that provides a nice crux near the top. The short, lower slab requires a series of easy smears to gain access to the vertical face and first bolt. Easy 5.6 - 5.7 climbing provides good holds for making chest high clips. Then, towards the top, the 5.8 crux forces the use of some balance and smaller vertical edges, below the last bolt, then small feet, slopers, and a high step to gain the rap anchors, at the last 5.9 crux, just above the last bolt.
Start on the lower slab and head up to the first bolt on the vertical rock face. Follow the line of bolts to the top.
