Description 

This is excellent face/slab climbing on good rock leads to the crux at the top. If it seems hard, you are missing the sequence.

Location 

It is the 3rd route from the left. Begin 10 feet off the trail on the talus slope.

Protection 

8 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

This is a fun route, and the crux is certainly at the top. A friend and I talked about bolting routes on this pinnacle a few months ago. Thanks to the guys that got it done.

Pretty boring, one interesting move at the end.

I disagree with the comment that is a boring route. For new leaders leading at this grade, it is a good route with a well-protected, thin move at the top.

Thought everything but the thin move, near the end, was 5.7, and the thin move on a delicate left foot was 5.8.

The move at the last bolt to the anchors is the crux. It requires stepping out and up on thin feet. Fun! This shares anchors w/ "I Tawt I Saw a Puddy Tat."
