A great sport route that's literally one minute from the road. Starts up an easy, left-slanting crack/flake (optional pro if you feel the need) to a well bolted vertical face with crimps and delicate footwork. It finishes up a short section of perfect handcrack (again, optional pro if you desire) to sport anchors on a small ledge. For those climbing even reasonably comfortably at the grade nothing more than quickdraws are needed. Three stars out of five.

Really fun route, and very well-bolted.
A #1 or #2 camalot before the first bolt, and I placed a green C3 and a medium nut at the top.
Crux is definitely delicate, the rest is super positive edging up the steep wall.
