Description 

A good route with a bouldery start, blocky midsection, and fun moves through the roof.
The guide book calls it 10d, compared to the Nose at Castle it is easier, maybe 10c.

Location 

just left of Hobo Erectus. Beware of Poison ivy at the base.

Protection 

7 bolts, and I used supplemental gear. I think after the first bolt I used a cam and somewhere up higher too.Shares anchor with Hobo Erectus.

The best route at Hobo's! The start is bouldery and committing, and the roofs are surprisingly pretty mild. If you know how to handjam and fingerlock, the roof crux will be cruiser. Strange bolt placement though at the roof!
