Description 

Follow the first line of bolts up to a 2 bolt anchor with chains. Easy terrain past the first 3 bolts, a distinct crux around bolt 5 or 6. There were a few loose "flexing" holds, particularly some underclings, so be careful, wear a helmet.

Location 

First route on the reservior wall

Protection 

8 bolts to anchors with chains.

Lots of loose rock, even by BB standards, watch out.

Fun, slightly technical climbing with a beautiful view in the sun. If you stay left of the bolt line it's a bit more interesting. I didn't find anything too loose, but definitely wear a helmet.
