BETA PHOTO: Old Guardian, 5.10 is "A" in the phototopo

Description 

Thin face climbing utilizing edges and crimps leads past several bolts to a small ledge/stance and the end of the difficulties. Above, moderate climbing up featured face, including several bulges, ends on a spacious ledge with great views of the surrounding area.

Good climbing down low, but the broken nature of the upper portion of the route detracts from the overall appeal.

Location 

Located on the right side of the wall and identified as the left of three bolted routes.

Protection 

6 bolts, ring anchors

Pretty darn crimpy for a few moves there.

Interesting movement, felt a little contrived, worth doing when climbing the other routes at stone wall.
