Stone of Ignorance.

Description 

The route follow the faceted face left of the corner climb 'Cheers'. This climb actually has several variations depending on how you want to take it. You can pretty much make your way up on the left or the right of the bolts. I preferred the right which seemed to match the grade better.

Protection 

7 bolts to anchors.

Good warm up, felt like a typical 5.9. This route does seem to be mislabeled in the new D'Antonio book, along with multiple other climbs in Spiney Ridge. If using this guidebook, watch out as you move down the crag to the right, multiple mislabels.

Probably 5.9+ if you stay on bolt line.

Easier if you stay on the flake/crack a couple of feet to right of bolts.
