Description

Scramble up easy terrain past a cedar tree on your left to the first bolt. Climb more or less straight up following the obvious bolt line to chains (the chains are painted brown, so they're hard to see from the ground).  Originally led primarily on gear, the route was re-engineered in July 2019 to make the line safer and more direct.  Now it seems fair to call it a sport route, but folks uncomfortable being a body length above a bolt can supplement the pro with cams in horizontals, although one might need to wander around to find the placements.  BTW, the re-do likely will force harder moves than the original line, putting the route in the low 10 range, IMO.

Location

Two sets of switchbacks and three minutes up the trail from Frat Boy; look for a very short spur trail leading right.  Vocational Training is the bolt line to the left, nearest to a largish cedar tree about 10 feet up.  (Shyster U is the bolt line to the right.)

Protection

Draws.  If taking cams, a single set to 3 inches (a No. 3 blue Camalot) will be more than enough.
