BETA PHOTO: Playing Hooky - 5.6. 1st Grade Problems, 5.7/8 is ...


This route is short, but an excellent route for beginners, with two variations. If you go around the small overhang to the right, there are multiple good edges and jugs around the roof and up to the anchors. The route is a bit dirty on the holds, from being new, but it will clean up quickly.
If you climb straight up, and through the roof/overhang, it is rated 5.8. Bolts can be clipped easily from either variation.


First bolted route on a short wall. Has a small overhang/roof in the middle.


4 bolts, plus two bolt anchor.

Short fun climb. Felt harder than 5.6 to me going right, and harder than 5.8 going straight up. Maybe 5.7/5.9?
