5? shiny new bolts to a two bolt anchor with rap rings. All solid but some of the falls might not feel too good due to the ledgy wandering route.

Description:

Scramble up the easy territory to the first bolt. Might be a little tricky high stepping or reachyness getting through the next section to the middle where there is a big ledge to rest on. From there a short section of face climbing takes you to the anchors. Probably don't want to fall clipping the next to last bolt. Felt a bit more like 5.8 to me, but is in keeping with the area grades.

Descent Options:

Rap rings.

4 out of 5 stars This is a hard climb for the grade

If you lead this one, it is a bit sketchy. Lots of good holds, just make sure you're on one before you try to clip.

4 out of 5 stars good but a little reachy.

Decent climb but with a few moves that made my shorter second climber a bit unhappy. A couple of the bolts were in areas where I wouldn't want to fall (2nd and last bolt). Nice mix of stemming and face climbing. Holds are generally pretty good throughout.

Made the dubious decision to traverse over at the top to set up "A little help from my friends"; I made it ok but don't particularly recommend it.
