For its height this is more like roped bouldering than a 'real' climbing route, but highballing this one is not recommended unless you have spotters and a good pad. It features thin, fingery face climbing with technical footing and a couple of tricky sequences, one of them being a balancey spread-eagle sidepull/layaway maneuver near the top before moving left to finish. It's short but worth the trouble if you're ticking the '5.9' climbs at the ranch. From the start it's harder than it looks and may feel like 5.10 on a hot day when the rock is slick. The belay can also be used to toprope a left-hand variant while you're there. (this climb is also known as "Three Rs")
