Up face through bolts to overhang, step left and through overhang, then up and left to anchor.


Middle of the cliff at an obvious left facing corner, start ten feet left of corner. [start in the corner is 5.9]


Bolts, standard rack

A nice climb, but currently a little dirty.
The PG13 rating is based on climbing straight up to the first bolt via the 11a face. That would be thin and a little scary to make that first clip, I would guess. Use a stick clip if you value your ankles, which would make the climb G-rated, as would doing the more common, easier start to the right. The easier start is 5.8 or 5.9 and makes the climb 5.10 overall (the guide says 5.10c, I thought 5.10a).
Bring a standard, light rack.
