The majority of the climbing on this pitch is quite pleasant, with good holds and rests throughout. Most of the climb is 5.8-5.9 with two 5.10 cruxes: one at bolt # 6 and one at bolt #8.


It is located within the cluster of more moderate routes on the West Side. More precisely, it's 10 feet south or climber's left of Bonsai.


10 QDs are needed. If you clip the first bolt of Bonsai, then you'll need 11 QDs to make it to the anchor.

Nice route, bolted thoughtfully. Could be led by climbers aspiring to this grade.

This is a nice route. Tightly bolted. Doesn't feel any harder than Bonsai.
