Climb the center of the north face past huecos on suspect rock. Lower or walk off to the left.
The middle of 3 routes on the north face of LLUA's Rock.
4 bolts + 2 bolt anchor.

As with the three routes on this side of the crag, the bolts are loose. The rock is very fragile. This is one of the better routes at the crag. Fun moves. Soft rating, more like 5.8

SOFT rock on this side. Hand/foot hold fell off yesterday (3/13/11). In the first beta photo seen from above, it is diagnally down & left ~1' of the climbers left foot that broke off.
Belayers beware and leaders too.

I was climbing nearby Logjammin' this week and noticed a rather large (and fresh) scar where a ~2'x2' block detached from this route approximately 2/3rds of the way up. I don't know if the difficulty has changed as I didn't climb it, but it goes to show that the rock is very soft on this route; more so than the lines to either side of it.

+1 on soft rock. The climber pulled off a Jansport backpack sized rock and it hit me on my head and leg whilst belaying (2/25/12). It came from near the top and a little ways to the left of the route. Thankfully I was wearing a helmet... some helpful people on the other side provided some bandage/wrap material for my leg. Fun moves with bomber hole holds coming out of the cave at the start. 5.8, PG 13 for belayer.

This climb was easy, but scary. Lots of thin, loose sandstone meant for an uneasy climb, and thankful to get to the top.
