This climb was decent for the area.... Not 5.9. Maybe 5.8 more like 5.7....... Way better than the Cuspidnator!

This climb is definitely a 5.8, and the crux is clipping and climbing past bolt 2 and 3, clipping the third bolt requires some vision and balls but the climbing eases up after you pass that point. the body position through 2 and 3 is inverted so don't let this climb fool you if your a new comer to climbing. I can see this climb being 5.7 if you climb a little off route and back step against chimney/block. It is a way better climb than the cuspidnator but does produce a significant amount of rope drag.

The Crux of this route is at the beginning of the route. After you get past that it is about a 5.6 climb the rest of the way up. Awesome view once you get to the top though.

The anchors for this route are about 10 feet to high over a good 5 or 6 foot shelf. It is murder on your rope if you try to top rope it. Honestly there are only about two fun moves at the crux, which is between the second and third bolt. If I did it again I would belay the second from the top and walk off, but I will probably just avoid it. It really isn't worth doing.

The hanger is missing on the first bolt. I don't know how/why buts its gone. So if you look at the featured photo, expect to clip the second bolt as your first piece; which while easy, would suck horribly to fall before you clipped.

Came here to say the same as paul w.; the first bolt is missing a hanger for some reason. It makes the blowing the "second" bolt really dangerous.

Also, there are some decent sized blocks (50-200 lbs?) between the third and fifth bolt that don't look very secure to me. There were a lot of people there so I didn't see if I they were very loose, but they'd easily kill someone if they fell. I'd exercise caution.
