Leftmost route on memorial wall. Awkward (for 5.6) moves on crumbly rock. Taking the risk of lost holds due to crumbling and not so great fall line into account, a solid 5.8 climber is recommended to lead this route.
6 bolts to anchors.

the moves are easy but so much loose rock.... i don't recommend for a first lead, may scare the climber.

I agree that you should be a 5.8 or so lead climber to climb this route. The current crux is going to fall, and soon. I don't want to be the person climbingit when it goes... Other than that, this is decent for a 5.6, and still makes agreat warmup.

This route is now rebolted and ready for business as of yesterday. Thanks to my wife Brenda for belaying me on lead to re-establish the route and the ASCA for providing the bolts to replace the ones that were chopped!

Safely and thoroughly bolted six times, walked our friend through her first sport lead on this. New Mussy hook anchor at the top.

I saw a couple of large rocks fall from a group climbing this route on 1/18/13. This was my last and least favorite route at the quarry. It seemed harder than 5.6. Be careful with this one since the rock seemed kind of unstable.

Felt more like 5.8, at least if you avoid using the several loose jugs, which I think is probably recommended. Still very well bolted and safe despite the choss. Make sure your belayer stands well to the right while belaying. Still a nice re-addition to The Quarry, thanks for you efforts Rough.
