5.6R (about 20 ft between bolts)
crimps and smears
many climbs have polished the route somewhat making smears difficult in places

2 out of 5 stars Runoutclimb but not hard.

Led up and on the right variation before I realized I missed the line. Downclimbed and then did the direct line. Went past the anchors for the trough to the ones near the top of Cheap Thrills.
