This route is a fun solo, requiring two ropes to do so. The 5.10d free section can be aided with midsize cams at A0. You could probably avoid the beginning chickenhead mantle by putting your aiders on the right chickenhead via a sling that has good grip. The bolts on this route are not that inspiring. Begin by getting to the Waterfront slab via "Chickenhead Holiday" or "The Tijuana Donkey Show" Climb an easy long slab 5.5 to the base of the 5.10d corner. Without a partner, it is possible to climb this corner and the "seam" in one pitch. With a partner, you'll need to do it in two. Begin the "seam" by hooking a hollow flake behind a bush/tree, then clip a spinner bolt. Finish off with a 5.7 pitch or head west on a ledge, then downclimb 5.6 into the Plumbline Gulley. The seam is acutally a crack that is around A1+.
