Description 

Abundant holds to the roof, after that some crimpers to the chains. The crux for me was the small roof after the 5th bolt. Also avoid the loose block just before the roof.

Location 

The route is on the far left of the wall. The starting bolt is probably 12 feet off the ground, but is easy to reach.

Protection 

10 draws, and rope should be enough. 8 bolts to chains. Also you may want to bring a runner for the fourth or fifth bolt as there is a likelihood of rope drag.

Only five bolts to the obvious chains. There's a bolt above the chains, not sure if the route is supposed to continue above.

Easy climbing to the roof, then nice positive crimps up on the face.

This rock is a cool departure from the regular pocketed AF limestone. The rating for this route depends on which direction you go at the roof. I took it straight on, following the bolt line. It was an exciting, reachy pull on 3/4 pad crimps and itty bitty micro-edges, and it was a solid 5.10d for those few moves. You can also go right on bigger holds and stay within reach of the bolts, making it about 5.10b.

The single bolt above the chains appears to be aesthetic, and doesn't lead to anything else. It is possible to top out and climb down a happy little staircase on the backside, but then there is an issue of gear retrieval.

Good route with a nice left side pull crimp over the roof. Didn't think it was a .10d though especially if you compare it to the .10d to the right of it.
