Fun little route, with a cool exposed crux at the 2nd bolt

Mostly easy but fun slab climbing with a distinct crux at the 2nd bolt as you navigate the tricky vertical arete. A medium to large cam (1.5-3 inch) works well in the horizontal crack between the first and second bolts if so inclined.

Fun route and in the morning shade (so a good route for the summer mornings). The face is a still a bit crumbly (even for JTree Granite), but it will clean up nicely over time. Stay on the Arete to stay on the route. If it is too airy, you can go left.

Neat passing the second bolt.

The rest, fun sailing.

Decent route. Fairly short, but pretty fun. Second bolt is kind of tricky, but ease beyond that. Once up top, possible to set up TR for Pet or Meat to the right.
