This is the third bolted route from the left. Rated a 5.8 on Mountain project. I did place a 1/2" nut between second and third bolt, probably not needed, but made me feel better. Route is airy but a bit easier than it looks. Well bolted and could be a 5.9 if you have a shorter reach. I loved this route.
