Transitioning to the bolted slab above.

Description 

This route starts up a left-facing corner protected by gear in a crack. At the top of the corner, bolts lead up a slab to the anchor. My partner and I both though this felt hard for its 5.8 rating. It did not seem much easier that the 9s to the left. Then again, after so much slab climbing, we may have been jaded. This route is as fun as the others, and you do get to play with some trad gear.

Location 

This route is to the right of The Green Mile and is the middle of the 5 routes on the rock.

Protection 

11 bolts and a rack to a #2 Camalot. There is a bolt anchor at the top.

I would agree the only thing that makes this route a grade easier than its neighbors is that the slab section is slightly shorter and has slightly more positive edges (though still tiny). The angle is the same, and the moves are basically friction. Lots of fun and long.
