Description:

This route (3rd from right) is sandwiched tightly between a 5.6(Chouette Cool) and a 5.8(Topless Ettiquette) on low angle wall. For the life of me could not find the intended route among the confusing jumble of zigzagging bolts that was to comprise anything near a 5.10b rating. Maybe you're supposed to skip some holds or do it one-handed or something:=)

Though I was on the 5.8 Topless Etiquette. Didn't get it clean.

3 out of 5 stars Gear + Bolts

This is a pretty good one and probably about the best climbing you'll find at Riviera, especially at the grade. It feels a little necky and runout, but it's pretty safe where it needs to be if you throw in about 3-4 pieces of gear (small-medium cams as the book suggests) and clip the 3 bolts.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

An old-school bolted route -- bring small gear and expect runouts until the second bolt. SOLID 10b with a thin friction crux at the 3rd bolt. This route sees many TRs, but few leads. If it seems easy, you're either very good or off route.
