It was not a challenge for me either, but that doesn't make it a bomb! It was a great slab climbing intro for my follower. Good rock and a great line, what more do you expect out of a 5.7 slab? Should it be hard for a 5.11 climber?
P1 is 60 feet not 150. Also it should have been listed as an R rated climb since you have 3 bolts for over 200 feet of climbing.

|I posted a couple of pics of this route below that I'm pretty sure is Island Express. The Hubbel guide confroozed the hell out of me. Regardless, if you head for the general area you'll find this "runout" express. One bolt to the first belay, three bolts and one hella runout to the second. Real easy slabby route, the runout section makes it worth while. I freakin love South Platte runouts so I'll give it a star just for that.|
