Description 

A good line to climb if you're at the wall, probably not worth hiking in for despite the 4 stars given to it in the book.

Technical climbing- a bit bold between the 2nd and 3rd bolts, but safe. Probably not a route to jump on if 5.10 is your limit.

Location 

Start in the gully on the left side of the wall at a shallow, right facing dihedral.

Protection 

5 bolts

good route. i didn't really like the bolting from 2nd to 3rd bolt. kind of runout with possible groundfall. easy climbing, but you rely on not 100% sound flakes for clipping the 3rd bolt. overall the climbing is very good, and a 10c climber probably won't be affected getting to the 3rd bolt.

Fun route, not a destination in itself. Bouldery moves off the deck lead to a sequence-y crux, decidedly not sustained thereafter. The spacing between the second and third bolts is such that you might deck if you slipped while clipping, although by that point you're through the difficulties. You could probably place a .5 or .75 camalot behind the flake to take out the spice.
