Thin slab climbing down low (somewhat reminiscent of Suicide Rock) leads to a fun, vertical face with abundant features. Not on par with the neighboring routes but perhaps worth a spin and no harder than 5.10c at best.

Thought the slab down low was pretty fun! Big ledge is kinda weird, but top is fun again. I could see 10d for the bottom or sure, but not a ton of routes quite like this in the area so I guess its hard to say.

Got on this route yesterday, couldn't really remember doing it in the past. Checked today.... seems I entered it to the data base and led it in '07! I bumped it a star, getting softer (understatement) in 8 years I found the delicate slab to be fun and even with the big ledge midway the upper section was good 'ol fashion plate pulling. The anchors are set back a bit, which are a little odd but overall pretty good and probably won't wait another 8 years to get on it again.

I think this gets way less traffic then the routes higher up the slot. Climbing on on very thin edges down low. I pulled a handfull sized chunk off when i reached the lip. Luckily, my other hand was solid and I didn't peel or drop the chunk on my belayer.

Solid route for the grade. The crux is definitely between the 1st and 2nd bolts.
