Description:

Part of start hold was broken off in 2012, must now consider the start to be 10a/b. Another edge broke off a little higher, making another dicey move. Easy-to-find route in middle of SW face, easiest for tall person to clip first bolt. Interesting start on face w/ small reachy block and edge. Thin face climbing. Avoid bailing up to right at top, route goes somewhat left for a fine finishing move.

3 out of 5 stars Dirty

Easy friction climbing with tightly spaced bolts. Not many of those around. Great intro to slabs, though if this route were in Yosemite or anywhere else for that matter, it'd be 5.6. I can see how this route may feel harder if you have little experience on slabs, but this route has good edges and is at a mild slope so sorry guys/girls, gotta downrate this one. First move or two may be 5.8-.
