"Climb the easy crack system inside the dihedral to its end. Traverse left to the top-chains shared with I Am Not the Man. This crack system protects well with medium to large traditional gear." - Falcon Guide's 'Rock Climbing Oregon' 2006

According to Rock Climbing: Oregon this is a two star route. If it is typical of the Bulo Point two star routes do not bother with anything rated two star or less. Took a climber up it for her first trad climb, a mistake it is not a good example of trad climbing. Next to it is Nook and Cranny a 5.7 and it appears to be a much better trad route.

I used only three cams 2 thru 4 Camalots (four is probably the most anyone would place).
