Pitch 1: Loose choss pile. More of an approch pitch than anything (5.5)
Pitch 2: Fun pitch up a cool corner. A little bit loose (5.6)
Pitch 3: Solid, textured rock. A little bit run out. (5.6)
Pitch 4: Easy climbing in textured slab (5.5)
Pitch 5: Easy slab, a little smooth and a little run out, especially at the top. (5.5)
If rappelling route make sure you know how to rap with a rope catch. There is lots of stuff for it to get tangled on, and it is often windy.
Walk off - it takes less than 25 minutes.

GF guided me up the route. I thought it was fun offered some interesting run out climbing. Lots of fixed pro on the route for Kid goat we just bring a less than half set of nuts and cams from .5 to 2..
We got away with murder and the skies stayed dry for the entire ascent. Jumped on the beautiful third pitch of the adjacent sport route instead of the crack. Rapped down and spent a blissed-out afternoon driving home.
Not a bad route. My partner went right by the first belay station (unintentionally) so we did it in 4 pitches. The second pitch (by the book) was the most interesting due to a nice corner. The rappel takes a slightly different route as it goes straight down. The last rappel station is under an overhanging roof so you'll have to trust that it's there.
This route has been bolted into submission, very small rack needed, mabey a 2,1,.75.5 and a few nuts, you can get away with less. can easly link pitchs 1,2 and 3,4. You can find alot better routes on this cliff than this one.
