Comments: An enjoyable route. But I wouldn't recommend it to a fledging 5.6 leader. There are opportunities to hit a ledge if you fall in the wrong place (close to the 4th bolt in particular) and the questionable rock quality doesn't help. The climbing is sustained and fun though

Comments: Mostly scrambling with a few boulder problems thrown in. Lots of bad rock. The bulge may as well be easy if you can commit to pulling on questionable jugs. I avoided those altogether and used the slopers, but my partner broke off a hold and fell. The top felt easier than 5.9+ but maybe I was just happy to be on better rock. Helmet highly recommended, especially for the belayer!

Comments: Definitely one of the higher quality slab climbs in the area. For me, the crux came after bolt 5 (or maybe 6 ), where the bolt spacing increases and you have to pick your line. It seems it can be 5.easy (if you go left and use the arete) or at least 5.10+ if you follow the direct line to the next bolt (which feels just a bit too far) with anything in between, with only one peculiar line that keeps it in the 5.9 range
