This is the last route on the bluff, past the Big Roof. It starts on a dirt ramp and the crux is pulling off the ground. Fortunately, someone added a bolt at head level as you are starting to keep you from an awkward fall as you pull up. Have your belayer stand out or to the left a ways as there has been some loose rock that can pull off from higher up. At the top, trend left and clip the anchors from Arachnid Tendencies. Not stellar, but pretty good.

Bolts. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.

Very awkward start that felt way harder then the grade, but once past it it climbs at 5.10 a/b.

Start is not 10b (current consensus).

the start on this thing is solid 5.11 till just past the second bolt. Then it steps down to 5.10a/b.

I believe the guide book calls this 10d. I think it's somewhere in the 10c-10d range. I did find some beta that made the start not too hard. But I have good shoes so YMMV.
