Committing start if you are not tall enough to clip the bolt first. That is the single hardest move on the route, the rest of it feels about 5.7, certainly easier than Chopping Block.

it's very secure between the first and second bolts, but if you were to fall near the second bolt, especially with some slack out to clip, you'd likely fall past your belayer into something unpleasant. take care!

I suppose there's more than one way to start this, but my partner and I started by stemming on the slab to the right of the belay tree and then worked up and left to the first bolt. Climb was easy, just figuring out which pockets are actually usable is the hard part. Top gives a good view of the creek where people like to swim.
