All you ever wanted.
Enjoy your holiday, there might be a few twists and turns along the way, but the vacation isn't over till you clip the anchors.
About 30 feet left of Beasto you'll find a rock staircase leading to your belay pad in the jungle. Holiday Road is furthest to the right, the first route you encounter.
9 bolts to chain link anchors.

A fun, easier climb, that makes you think at the crux, the last 8ft.

Nice meeting you today Kirt and Kirt! I'd say it's a sustained 5.7 until the very last move which I'd call a solid 5.8. It's probably a little harder because of the mass amount of lichen on it right now. Great job and thanks again for all your hard work on the crag!

I agree. Cruising 5.7 until the last move. You can go far left to make things easier, but going over the face is a stiff 5.8 move. Another great route, Thanks so much, Kirk! Can't wait to get on the others you have lined up!

Start seems like 5.6 then a 5.7 move around the 50' level and then the finishing slab seems like 5.8+ to me. Thin holds and a few moves.
Slightly harder than the crux on Bitty Buttress or Upper Ruper for that matter; both being only 2 move cruxes. Just my opinion, but then again I'm getting older now. Three stars.

Hardest part is getting a stance to clip the anchors.

A friend slipped trying to get to the anchors last week. He hit the ledge below the headwall and broke his ankle. So be careful or give a tight belay to prevent similar accidents.

I found the best way to get to the chains ( which can be considered unsafe) is to go a little right and up and over the top. Clove my rope to the anchors and swing back down. I usually do this if I'm just trying to set a top rope for people in a rush, but if you have the time, have fun jumpin to the chains on the direct route!!

I agree that the last 8-10 feet is the crux. That last bolt before the anchors was tough to get if you're staying left just a bit. You really have to stay direct on this route. All bolts and anchors are in great shape this week.

If at the top you take the left side (up the gully/seam), it's 5.7, direct is solid 5.8(+) IMHO. Worth an extra half star (up to 1.5 *s) if done directly.
