Easier start gains a thin crimpy section near the top. This route tops out and the anchors are located above the lip on a large boulder. If you follow the bolt lines directly it is harder than 5.8, the 5.8 climbs just right of the bolt line then shifts back left at the top.


This is one the short vertical wall that is the first thing you see at the Practice Wall, this is the right most sport route on that wal just left of Short and Sweet 5.7


3 bolts to Rappel Rings.

Follow the bolt line: goes at 9-. Go right: easily an 8, but IMO off route.

Just like Shawty next to it, I thought this went at 5.9 ... but what do I know?

The guidebook lists this at 5.9+. It's pretty polished though, so it felt harder, especially on hot sunny days.
