This route is located on the left end of the contest wall just past "Liquid Pork" and can be spotted easily as it is a bolted crack with another bolt line just right (using first 2 bolts of this route). This route is fairly straight forward and a little dirty but decent. A good warm up, althought warming up on cracks for pocketed limestone may be a bit much... ?? Have fun with this one, and then move on to something better. Cheers.
5 bolts (homemade painted red) - 2 bolt anchor. Per Brandon Schirm: This route was just rebolted and has around 11 bolts now.

I found this to be a quality route, made safer with the recent retrobolt. Balancy climbing past the first two bolts (can stickclip the second) leads to jugs, then head underneath a roof (with some loose stuff - I broke off a foot and handhold in this area), turn the roof to the left and handjam/stem your way to the anchor. Watch for bird crap under the roof. I thought it was harder than 10a, and I would call it more like 10c. The 1990 Mark Van Horn guidebook called it 10c/d.

| || A little dark, but you can see most of the route except the balancy start. The roof is more of a mental move out left, and the dihedral has some big but pumpy holds. |
Pretty long and fun route. It's got it all. Balancy slab moves at the bottom, heady roof, and some fun jams up the dihedral at the top.
