Barite is the rightmost climb that has a bolt visible on the route. This is one of the best of the easier climbs on the cliff, but some might find the Hueco Wall climbs to be easier than this one (as those are less sustained).
Steep climbing with a lot to choose from the whole way, as you pull with sidepulls/liebacks to gain a shallow corner up high. You'll pass cool-looking white barium sulfate (barite) crystals in a vertical vein on the way.
With only one bolt with a hanger currently present, leading is discouraged.
Toprope from a bolted anchor at the top of the cliff. There are 2 bolts on the route, one of which is missing a hanger.
