Description:

The climb starts on overhanging rock. There are some hard moves at the beginning. Climbing eases some after the 4th bolt. Be careful clipping 6th bolt, as a fall with slack out could land you on the ramp below. TR anchors are a little hard to see, off to the right. 2 ft runners are helpful. TR variation is 5.9. Full value variation (5.11-) continues up to the left from bolt 7, past 4 more closely spaced clips to a belay ledge. Pitch 2 travels up low angle corner to an overhanging arete. Rap anchors on ledge above.

5 out of 5 stars nice climb, lots of bolds

Starts out much harder then it looks. Be sure to be ready to catch your buddy if he falls clipping the first bold.
I felt on the 8th bolt (on the easy part) and cut my leg, rock is a little bit sharp, but this route is very well protected. Just watch out for the ledge after the 4th bold. I hope to it climb again soon.

4 out of 5 stars fun route

I also felt this climb was easier than 5.11, I would have given it maybe 5.10a for the first pitch, and 5.10c for the second pitch.

2 out of 5 stars worthy climb...

I only climbed the first pitch. I personally thought the start felt more like 5.10, then the climbing eased up a bit. The rock is still a bit dirty. I have heard it is quite chossy on p2. May be a good time to consider a helmet.
