Climb a small flake to a two bolt face. Bolted anchor on top.


Middle of the face w/Barretts and Point Break.


Try to fiddle something in before you get to the two bolts on the face.

A decomposing flake marks the start of this so so route. Plug in a medium cam to keep you from rolling down the hill if you pop. A tiny wire can be placed behind the jug at the top of the starting flake. It will probably not hold much of a fall. Stand up on a dike and clip the first of two bolts. Standard sorta grainy face climbing to a two bolt anchor.

I'll go 1.5 stars since it has a feature to actually pull on.

Hand size piece will protect you from a grounder while going for the large hold before fiddling with a small wire although it's not all that crux. The small wire is marginal at best and better placed from the vertical crack below the handhold vs. the slot above. YMMV…..small brassy went in okay and would likely have held my body weight should I have blown while stepping up to reach the bolt. Route eases considerably after the 1st bolt. Good, fun but not 5.10 or R in my opinion. Anchors above over sloping ledge.
