Just after the crux.

Description 

Start on the ledge with lots of loose dirt and blocks. The crux comes in the first 2 bolts with some thin moves up the clean slab. Continue up on positive holds with fun moves.

Location 

This is the farthest route to the right on Fiscal Cliff and climbs the tallest clean slab of rock.

Protection 

Quickdraws.

Caution 

A MP.com user suggests that climbing behind the steel curtain could be a nightmare for access concerns. The whole crag could easily get shut down to begin with, since it's right on the new bike path, and people climbing those two routes is just an invitation to give them a great excuse to close access to the crag!

This one looks like it is covered by steel rock fall netting, so it may not be climbable at this point (?)

I haven't actually climbed it since they put the steel net up, but it looks like you can still climb it.

Plenty of room to get on the ramp and belay behind the fence/net. Route's still settling, so watch for the loose rock in places.

Yeah, you can't really climb this with the net.

I climbed this route yesterday, and you absolutely can still climb it with the net there. You just scramble up the ramp and belay behind the net.
