3 out of 5 stars Fun start

Basically a nice boulder problem with an easy route stacked on top. The start is definitely the crux. Hanging start from the horizontal crack. The hand holds are somewhat obvious but feet are hard to find. A long reach up to a pinch and you can get homefree from there. Once you get past the first 5 or so moves it's a really easy route...

3 out of 5 stars somebody did it

Did not get his name, but did beg him to post a report here, maybe to get others trying this short climb.
He did a standing start directly from hanging at the crack up onto the face. He said a matching pull on the white quartz nodule is the key for doing that. He liked it, and thought Kelley's 5.9 was correct. She had belayed from the little uphill slope off the trail quite comfortably.
