Wishbone and Pollo Loco

Description 

A nice warm up for the area. Scramble up a few blocks to start the climb.

Location 

Just right of Wishbone and Spring Chicken. There's a plaque at the base with the name and grade.

Protection 

6 bolts to Springer Anchors

Warmed up on this yesterday (before getting on Wishbone next to it) and found the bolting a bit off for a 5.9. I'll go back and move some of the bolts to make the protection less ponderous (not sure when but I'll update the route info at that time). It's fine if you're warming up on it but for a 5.9 climber the protection would be unnecessarily thought provoking.
