This route climbs up the area where the brown rock begins to transition to gray rock. A little chossy.

Beginning leaders might be better off climbing the 5.10a route Made To Order to the right of this one.


Second route from the left, between Fun Factory (5.7) and Made To Order (5.10a).


6 bolts to double ring anchors. Shares anchors with Fun Factory.

So-so climbing on intriguing rock with all of the bolts a bit too far right.

Very challenging for a 5.9. The bolts maybe too far right, but the rock is excellent and the movement fun.
