More fun than Gus but also slightly more difficult. It, along with Gus, makes for a good beginner lead.

The first bolt seemed high for a lower rated climb, but after you clip the first one, if you spread out and look/feel around, you'll find your way.

Reasonably fun. Seemed harder than 5.6 to me.

Runout from the 4th bolt to the anchors seems excessive for a route of this nature. A 5th bolt would be appreciated by many. There's a horizontal break that'll take a yellow Alien (or similar) if you need a little extra piece of mind on the way to the anchors.

Compared to Gus, one slightly more difficult move in the middle, but you can clip 3rd bolt before make the move.
