The 1st route done on the cliff, an obvious stunning black crack surmounting the wave and up to poison oak finish. Equalize bushes for anchor or bolt a new 2nd anchor. Often dripping with foggy love.

Someone added bolts at the end of the section below the wave, and although it looked to be 5.10+/.11- up to that point, I'd be curious as to who bolted it, did they free it up to that point, did they try the roof, and what was their given rating?
