Getting started on the real climbing after the sho...

Great overhanging pocket pulling! Start up a rock ramp, trending left to avoid the choss. Clip your first bolt just at the top of the ramp and the second one comes just there after. Technical crux was probably the first move after clipping the second bolt, it's just a matter of fighting through a pump factor after that. Just keep climbing, it gets easier near the anchor.

4-5 bolts to sport anchor.

Kind of a short climb, but fun. This was my first attempt on a 5.11- climb, and I had a blast. Almost every pocket is huge, and will gobble up your entire finger (and will probably eat up some skin too). Someone left some nasty ticks on almost every pocket, luckily I wasn't planning on an OS attempt. I was going to brush them off after I finished, but by the time I clipped the anchor I forgot that I had a brush on my chalk bag.
