A high quality finger crack (crux) leads to easier moves above. It gets shade for most of the day.

Fun route... one that would have received more stars if that bottom section was a little longer. I thought the bottom MIGHT be more like .8+/.9 moves, but whatever. The upper half on this rather short route was pretty fragile but overall was easy climbing.
All in all, a good route do and easy to get to... sees little traffic and it worth stopping by if you're in the area. It gave a nice mix of sun and shade in the late morning.
