This route starts in an obvious open book before traversing the smooth, right side wall to the corner then up and around the large roof. Interesting, sustained 5.7 climbing past two bolts and eventually to the top. A 60m rope just made it down in one rap.
Toward the left side of the North End area there is an obvious open book capped with a large roof. Usually marked with a large amount of bird crap from nesting crows.
G - Good gear abounds and two bolts protect an area which would otherwise offer no protection.

They were still there after la mesa got chopped so unless someone went back in the last month or so and destroyed them then they should be there.

The bolts are intact.
This climb is sweet!! The crux is at the top. There's a nice arete you have to go up, before the top. It is easily protected with a cam or two, and has fairly definite holds -- although a tricky-ish sequence. Fun stuff! This is what makes it 5.7.
Beautiful rock, varied movements, pretty serious exposure, and a fantastic beautiful setting!!
