5 out of 5 stars ..

Approach as per the original route. Mechanical persistence is approx. 100 ft to the climbers right of the original route. Bolts are well camouflaged, but the first pitch's anchor chains are easily visible from the base. Route starts just right of a small tree. There is a shiny bolt in a groove 20-30 ft right of mechanical persistence (unemployment line?) that is around 20 ft up.

P1: 5.10a climb past many bolts to small ledge with chain anchors. 90'
P2: 5.9 Climb up and left off belay. Follow bolts to a 2 bolt anchor on a small ledge. 80'
P3: 5.11a Climb straight up off belay. After clipping the last bolt go right on slab/ramp to 2 bolt anchor. 90'
P4: 5.10b Follow bolts to the top. 2 bolt chain anchor. 90'

Descent: Rap from the top to 3rd pitch anchors. Rap off these anchors to the right to a ledge on top of a slab. Scramble down to the climbers right and then down loose, steep, vegetated gully back to packs.

Rack: 12-14 draws (some long ones to minimize drag)
Gear of choice for anchors.
