Description:

fourth route from left, nice face 5.9, no overhang. For a more difficult variation (5.9+?), start the climb 3 feet to the right of the bolts, and stay to the right of the water stain, until you get to the tree growing out of the rock near the third bolt. Top out normally.

3 out of 5 stars Gut Punch the Buddha

Neat top rope to the right you can try after you clip the anchors. It's a 5.10c called Pinch the Buddha. Recently a starting hold tufa broke but a couple of us got on it again and it still went. If you're tall you can completely avoid the broken tufa, if you're shorter it still goes but might feel a bit harder.
