Third bolt line from the left of the broken dihedral crack at the south most (right) part of the wall.
Slightly harder than it's sister lines to the right, G.I. Joe gets your fighting spirit going. The tree directly at the base of the route helps to keep the sun off your belayer. Watch out for the two foot rod iron stake sticking out of the retaining wall. A fall onto it would make a very unpleasant day.
May be done as a top rope by scrambling up the ledges to the south.
Five bolts to double chain anchors.

Don't fall while clipping the second bolt. Or you'll deck. Like my climbing partner did today (amazingly took a 20 foot fall, landed on his feet on the rock, and suffered only a mildly sprained ankle).
This is an interesting climb. Very balancy and feels technical. Lots of small hand and footholds. Not small enough to be really difficult, but not big enough to be easy or obvious.

My left foot slipped just above the second bolt on this. Luckily it landed on the bolt, so I felt like I cheated a little. I moved to a new foot hold quickly but the damage had been done. The rating fits due to some variation in holds. Some smaller ones to start with bigger holds a little higher.
