Description 

Excellent rock, great length, and fun, fun, fun. Guide book suggests 11a. Climbs more like a 10b/c.

Protection 

About 9 bolts and maybe a cam or two to thwart a 25-30 foot runout to the anchors.

My favorite route in The Glitter Box area. Sustained at the grade. The crux is really just the over-all length of the thing. Sheesh. The anchors are waaaay around up and to the right. Getting to the anchors was the PG-13 part.

The bolts are very far to the right of the route. They face the West. If you warm up on three amigos you can see the bolts at the top so you know where to go.

If you mantle to the very top of the route just make sure you don't have any pro too high up or else it will cause a lot of rope drag if you have someone who is going to follow climb to clean it up.

I placed a second cam near the top before I topped it out and once I had my PA's in I realized I had to traverse back to the cam and remove it so that the rope drag wasn't bad. I suggest once you're near the top just traverse to the right and anchor in.

Felt harder than Proto-Pipe, which is rated 11b. Calling this 5.10 is such a sandbag! Unfortunately the bolts look worse for the wear for such a great climb.
