Description 

Bandito is the leftmost bolted route at Mallette Park and is the easiest at 5.7. It is not as clean or direct as Moonshine, but is still enjoyable and a good beginner sport lead route for the grade. Scramble up the blocky start and continue up the indentation just left of the smooth face containing Bounty Hunter. Good balance and body positioning help higher up, as the angle of the rock tends to force a slight swing towards the face.

Protection 

9 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor

Need to be pretty tall to reach that ledge halfway up or so. Felt harder than a 5.7.
Some routes at roadside distraction rated harder seemed easier.
