Description 

Climb nice jugs to an low ledge and the first clip. Stand up on the ledge and make thin but well protected moves through a headwall and a devious crux. Figure out the crux and pull up onto a sloping ledge. Move up through easier terrain to a another headwall and a fun crux with interesting incut holds. Move up onto the low angle slab that guards the anchors. This has fun, thoughtful climbing.

Protection 

7 bolts.

From jugs to tiny crimpers you can wrap a finger around.

Good route with interesting climbing on rock that provides excellent friction. I only gave it 2 stars, because it is among a few other great 5.10s that I found more memorable. This would make for a good warm-up. Thanks to the developers of this wonderful piece of rock.
