2 out of 5 stars Classic Red start

The start is the entire route. The first bolt is clippable from standing by a 5'6" climber, but you could end up wanting it, as when you inevitably pop off the start it'd be easy to go over about an eight foot drop into some bushes. Once you get to the hands near the second bolt, you're home free. Anchors are over a comically massive ledge--makes TRing this kind of a pain, actually.

Best thing about this route is that it's next to some really comfy ledges--makes a great lunch spot.

1 out of 5 stars Pretty terrible.

I wouldn't waste your time on this. Go down the stairs to the 5.9's.

3 out of 5 stars 2nd bolt is a doozy

We laughed at the 1st bolt placement (reachable from the ground) until I got up and actually tried the move to the 2nd bolt and was glad to be protected. Very hard to read, but ultimately not as difficult as the first 17 ways I tried it.
