This is a great climb! Actually more like 5.10- (what Steve had rated it). Easy climbing at the dihedral to a slabby section a small roof (crux) between bolts 4 through 6, then eases off again to some really fun climbing. One of the longer routes in the area. Be careful pulling your rope on this climb; there are a couple of spots in which a rope could get stuck. (I've seen it happen.)
