The best 5.9 at Rodeo and the usual warmup. The climb begins with 30 feet of slab, to a fun roof move, and then quality crimping and edging to the anchors.
7 bolts. Anchors.
The second climb to the right of the "step up" in the middle of the base trail. About 15 feet to the right of this step.

1 bolt every 10 feet is about right (for everything on this wall). Fun stuff -- can you say WHIPPER!!! It's all clean falls though, mostly. Surprisingly good just off-vertical to vertical climbing with some overhangs; the .10a/b stuff is cool too.

There is a two bolt anchor at the base of this route, apparently for instructing a neophyte follower on the art of cleaning a route. Better than shouting directions from the base!

I thought the 9+ rating the guide book had given the route was consistent with the other ratings at Rodeo.
