Sustained climbing with a cool finish up the hanging arete at the top.
Gets sun all day and is sheltered from the prevailing winds.
This and Ben's route make for a decent warmup for the .11's and .12 on Jail House.
On the south face of the formation down stream, but on the same side, as Jailhouse Rock. Starts right of Ben Burnham's 5.10 route. Which, by the way, is the best Burnham route I've done.

There was still some small loose rock on the lower part of this route as of 12/06. It should clean up well and is a very good route.

It's pretty easy climbing, but there are a couple of shallow cracks that can be used to ease the runout from the 4th to 5th bolt, would take something like .4 to 1 Camalot.
