5 out of 5 stars Hard start but really fun.

There's a cheater block you can use to start but if you don't use it its a hard start but a fun one.

4 out of 5 stars great route, tough start

Second bolted route from left end of bluffline. Hard, bouldery start followed by easier climbing. Well protected, shorter than most at Shepherd, easier than most at Shepherd at this grade.
