Route Summary | Ascent Notes (18)
Medium to large gear (up to #4 Camalot or equivalent)
As the name suggests, the holds are bomber on this route (once you get past the start). Lots of great placements for gear.
Starts just left of Kennel Club, directly below a prominent slot at the top of the wall. Climb a short corner up to a vertical crack; continue up the crack to the overhanging slot, and pull through it on good holds to the top.
The beefy bolted anchors at the top have no rap rings, so top out and head to the east end of the block to find a rap station.

People who say this is 5.7 probably didn't lead it on gear. The opening is thin, with marginal gear, and slightly tenous moves...enough of a combination to wake you up. The top, despite the notes here, is fine as long as you keep moving and use the good holds available to you...it feels a little spooky because your last piece is 8 feet below and underneath you, as the top bulges a little. The final move on sloper could feel scary if you were pumped, I suppose. I belayed from the top, and rapped from there using the anchors, no problem. We used to rap by slinging the horn...the anchors are better.
