Description 

Start about 20' left of Cakewalk (5.8) by climbing past a solitary bolt into an arching, left-facing corner. Higher, steep and enjoyable moves lead past another bolt into a thin crack which leads to the top.

A great route which should not be missed if in the area, this climb will leave a favorable impression on you. Three stars out of five.


Protection 

2 bolts (3/8"), pro to 2.5"

After quite a tricky but well protected crux the upper crack has a way big feel to it.

Position, exposure, varied technique.

First time's a charm.

An excellent climb; the rock has cleaned up well. Challenging for the grade; I would call it more 5.10c/d.

Good route. Two cruxes. First crux is well protected but harder at the second bolt. The second crux is the "mental" one.Towards the top of the crack, I fiddled for 15 minutes trying to get some gear higher than knee level to protect a tough move. Eventually I found a marginal RP in a flare - not the best piece but good enough to bust the move.

Like the other person indicated, this climb leaves an impression on you.

Overlooked classic! Bring your captain crush hand for the crux lay back.

Jumped on this climb on a whim on the way back to the car... wowza. I thought I was gonna take a toss somewhere past the bolt for sure (had to charge pretty far past it to get a stance and gear- pumped!). Really, really good route. As noted, a tad hard at the grade. Be mindful of a hollow flake down low.
