1 out of 5 stars Bonanza

Miramontes has it as 5.10b, and start reflects that grade vs 5.10a. Not that good a route, sketchy start and not sustained. The start involves a height dependent stem to reach a bolt. Then tricky transition into the slanting horizontal crack. Fun crack climbing for a few meters to a large ledge to a face with two bolts, the second being height dependent yet again with a potential deck below. After that, follow an easy chossy corner to the top. Hop Sing is good and Black Tower offers a few ok routes. But this is a bush whack approach for not that many good climbs. Miramontes guide indicates a limited amount of sun when in reality this wall gets a solid portion of mid-day sun in January. The best way off all routes is the fixed rap on the sport climb way off to the right. I had no problem walking out to the anchor but some might want a belay.
