This whole thing seems cruxy! A delicate bolt-protected slab/dihedral, one is glad there are many bolts!
This is the first bolted route on the North (right) side after the rock-scramble to gain the Dr's Office proper.
10 bolts, chain anchors

My first impression was too many bolts. My second was THANK YOU FOR THIS NEXT BOLT! A fun, technical (if sandy) climb.

Come on Greg...I've been fighting grade creep for some time but .10-?? Be serious. If your new pal was a budding 10 climber how well do you think they would do on this route. Granted, it's well protected but the moves up the slab are pretty technical.
Maybe I should do it again, but I too was pretty thankful when I was able to just clip it up and go. Screeching down that slab didn't look to enticing.

I always felt this was 5.9 at the most.

Classy route. We climbed it in the rain. Harder than 5.9 but our friend climbed it, it was her second climb ever.

Definitely some of the cleanest moderate rock at the Office.
