Joyride has fun, varied climbing on the right side of the upstream roof area. Start at the black streaks.

This route is fun! I thought the crux was at the top between the last bolt and the anchor. The holds up here are not incut, and the sequence is not obvious.

No way this is 5.8! Have climbed it twice now, once on lead.

Tried to lead this today, ended up following/cleaning on it for the last 2 bolts (I agree with Jay Eggleston as to the crux location). Great route! Excellent bolt placement too! but I agree with Doug Redosh, definitely seemed harder than a 5.8. Could also use a good cleaning, in some spots it's pretty sandy.

Wanted to do this as a warm-up, but it was really wet and muddy which made it feel WAY harder than an 8. By the end of the day after we climbed some of the other stuff around the corner, this route was dry. Oh well, haha.

Hey, I found a pair of draws at the anchor here on Monday. Keeping them safe - holler if they belong to you.
