This is the right of the two lines on the big slab at Funk Rock. You may want a medium sized cam up high to protect a long runout. The crux is somewhat height dependant and bouldery, and the rest of the climb is more moderate. Very fun moves and very cool rock. The finishing moves to the anchors are very delicate and you should take care as there is a ledge you can hit. It's happened before.

To be more specific on the cam size, .5" to 1".

Very soft for the grade, even by Red standards. Good crisp holds, low angle fun.

It is run out, but the route is soft in the run out section. Extra pro is unnecessary if you are confident climbing 5.8 slab.
