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.

Good warmup for the wall. Drilled angles are still there and looking solid. YMMV.
