Description 

Begin on a small sloping ledge at the left end of the crag and climb in a right diagonal direction past the first two bolts. Continue, more or less, straight up past a short crack and two more bolts to a ledge. Crux moves on thin edges / knobs occur past the 4th bolt. The second pitch ascends an arching crack and face (5.8 R).

Protection 

The first pitch protects with quickdraws for 4 bolts and a medium stopper / small cam for a short crack between the 2nd and 3rd bolts. The second pitch ascends a low angle face / crack to two inches. Walk off to the right.

Unless someone has added a bolt to this route, the 1st pitch is a bit sporty.

I remember the climbing to the first of four bolts was mentally demanding (5.10) but I don't remember any other sections in betweeen the pro that were "sporty." I didn't think the route deserved an R rating for the first pitch (I submitted the evaluation for the climb). However, it is a J. Woodward route so....

Good climbing that's better protected than appearances and/or the fact it's a Woodward route first suggest. A worthwhile tick if in the area.

The four bolts are all original, thirty years old, and highly suspect. The first two are the award winning 1/4" bolt/Leeper hanger combo. The fourth bolt protecting the crux and subsequent runout is an SMC spinner (1/4" bolt I think). It doesn't get much more confidence inspiring than that.
