The furthest route to the left. Crux section is from the bottom up to a little bit before the second bolt, and it is a touch runout just before the second bolt. Fortunately, you're not real high at that point, and the holds for clipping are bomber. Get your hand up to the horizontal crack/mini-rail, and you're good. Smooth, 5.9-ish sailing with decent variety from there on up.

1 out of 5 stars wierd.

Did it once, probably won't do it again. If you're not totally comfortable leading 10b watch out! if you peel off the crux your belayer may get a black eye. It lets up significantly after the 2nd bolt.

2 out of 5 stars Decent. Not great, but decent.

Inured a pulley in my right ring-finger last October while hanging with three fingers off that slot-pocket next to the first bolt. Decided later that I can just as easily cram all four fingers in there. Getting healthy now, and made the route just fine. BTW - I love the look of the curve of this wall when viewed from the top of this route!
