Ian Stewart following first pitch of Hit or Miss (...
Fun slab climb with newly-updated bolts. Trad bolting may feel runout to new leaders.
First pitch: 0.5 camalot and 4 bolts, 165', 5.7
Second pitch: 2 bolts and 0.5 camalot, 160', 5.6
Both belays are at bolted anchors with rap rings.
Descent: Rappel the route.
40' left of Black Uhuru (5.6) on ledge about 100' below main Bunny Slopes ledge. Scramble down from there, or find a faint use trail up from the road.
single 0.5 camalot needed on both pitches, 4 quickdraws

On the 5.7+ side of things, particularly because the harder slab moves are well above the bolts, and there is a bit of slightly crumbly rock. Not as well protected at the cruxes as most other Bunny Slopes routes - not that any are tightly protected (particularly by modern sport climbing standards...but 4 bolts in 160 feet shouldn't give anyone any trouble figuring that out!).
