Description 

This was the first route put up on the cliff and takes the best line up the center of the face. The original route starts on the rusty bolt that is also used for Trim The Bush. An alternate start is the more direct clip to the left. Follow good holds and low angle climbing to the vertical, steep finish. If the route is going to be top roped, bring webbing for the anchor to reduce rope drag. It is best to rap the route rather than lowering to save wear and tear on your gear.

Protection 

9 bolts to a 2 bolt chain anchor.

Excellent climbing made worse by loose holds.

Originally graded as 5.9. Would be pretty soft for 5.10b

Rusty bolt was replaced, came out super easy! Use the direct start option mentioned in the route description. New bolt was placed more in line with "Trim The Bush". Should also help with spacing these lines out a bit.
