Straight up to the crux between the top bolt and anchors. Simple route with great holds all the way.

This climb is actually the 4th climb to the right and goes straight up to anchors. Guide book gives this a 10b and not a 5.9+. I agree with the guide book rating for the immediate area compared to the other routes.

I found this route to be a bit easier than a 5.10b due to the awesome holds, but it definitely takes some endurance, as the almost the entire route is making you lean back. Great, fun route.

Thanks RN, I forgot about the route that branches off of Mass Production. I maintain that it is a hard 5.9, maybe 10a.

Fun climbing up a flake system to a nice steep finish but not as difficult as advertised.

This was the first chipped climb I've been on. I liked it a lot, but some people may not like that it's like a gym climb. I say it's like a gym climb because you don't have to search frantically for holds when leading - you can see the glue or whatever, just like tape or colored plastic rocks. Still a great climb for me.
