Bolted route on the left side of Knob Hill proper. Scramble up ~10' to a ledge under the first bolt. You can clip it from this stance. Probably a good idea because the crux is the third move. The belayer should have a solid stance nearby because this is a smearfest. 6 total bolts. A little run out at the top but the knobs are positive. You'll need most of a 50' rope on this route. The end of the route is at the tree. You can rap off of it if you have a second rope(only one 60m rope needed if you rap left into gully). Good idea. Because the second pitch, while easy, is pretty much a solo. Descend to the left down some dirty mossy class 3/4.
The rating only applies as 5.8 if you stay left. Going straight over the bolt is harder. Supertopo puts it at 5.10a I think.
