Really fun trad or top rope route. Difficuly not overwhelming for the novice leader despite moderately strenuous start. Route eats up medium to large pieces lower down with great lieback hands. Balancey footwork needed to top out.
Medium to large hexes or cams (1"-3") work nicely, as well as a few medium to large stoppers. Two bolt belay anchor at the top.

Super loose up on top, if setting up TR move all the big rock or they will slide down.

Fun route with a great 5.8 slab variation to the left off the same anchors.

Easy 5.7, maybe 5.6, but fun climbing. Two tricams and and two scld's were all i used. brown tricam and a sling around a feature at the top for an anchor that was actually in-line with the climb to belay a second. Bolts to the left are awkward and off route.
Great for beginners to practice placements

Currently no two bolt anchor above this climb. Borrowing the anchor from Clamydia will risk a big pendulum from the top.
Build a good enough anchor using gear and trees directly back from the top of the climb.
