Fun, easy romp on pretty good rock.
Starting from the right and bypassing the first bolt (as shown in the Bishop Area Rock Climb book) is 5.8. Direct start looked ~10a.
After passing the first bolt, climbing eases. A bit of a run on big holds to the 3/4 bolt.


2nd route from the left on the taller section of the wall.


7 bolts
anchor: two drilled pins, one with a biner, one with quicklink and chain

This route is worthy of an anchor upgrade for anyone up to it.
