Including for completeness sake; it's always been busy when I want to try it. A classic Gunks "face" climb.
Straight up face across from 1-800-Stick-It Arete; stay ten feet left of crack with tree. Easy walk-off.
Plenty and easy to place. Bolted TR anchor.

the bolts are there but they don't have rings so it's best to pull rope up from the top and rap down from the bolts (with rings) to climber's right over 'psycho crack right'.

The guide book by Marty and Mike show a different route up than this page does. They have the route going much further to the left which might explain the 5.9+ rating. I too thought it was easier than a 5.9+ but I stayed more right which had way bigger holds than the left.

This route is close to a deep crack that is great on hot days because it feels like A/C air coming out of the crack. On the other hand be aware that this route takes much longer to dry after a damp day. Some really slippery holds at the bottom in the mornings.
