Bolts for the first pitch, then an assortment from pretty thin to 1 1/2"
Pick your warmup to this one, the easiest being Original Sin then stop at the two bolt anchor. The beautiful crack/corner system to the right of The Saint is the objective. It starts out easy, and slowly builds until you're desperately stemming and jamming out the overhanging corner above your gear. It's possibly hard for the grade. I love that this route is what the area is named after, and it's one of the last to be added to RC.com since it's trad.
Two rappels, can be done with a 50m rope.

A fine trad pitch with fairly easy access at a local crag. The boulder problem crux is pretty punchy, and for the redpoint I opted for trusting the gray Metolius instead of trying to waste energy placing yet another piece at the under cling. This climb protects well and is not PG-13 or R by any means.
I've wanted to do this thing for a while and Stein decided to go with me! After he took a few 15+' whips and proved that the falls could be safe on the 0 TCU I sent it. It was my 2nd try. Stein followed shortly thereafter with his RP. :)
