After the scrambly not-so-fun start, this route makes a nice moderate start to the day, but if you're so inclined the two 5.9s to the left of the gear route (which is to the left of this route) are much more fun.

Starting on the slab instead of the alcove will avoid the sketchy start. Regardless a good climb. 60m rope just works from the alcove/butt crack.

Borderline VS/HVS with a very slippery start.
