A good climb worth doing. And a little off the beaten path for those busy days.

I'm not sure this route sees much traffic. My impressions of this route are that this is a bit of a JTree sandbag. Some fun (but not sure they're 5.7) moves in the crack followed by some funky part that, from the ground, looked super easy. This route protects well, but I'm not sure I would put it on the recommended list. Road noise can play a little havoc when communicating with your belayer... especially during Biker Week. Probably went too high on this route... belayed off a huge ledge (great view of the park). Saw the 5.7? bolted route (either a great paint job on the hangers, or they're O-L-D). Opted to retreat as directed by the new Vogel guide.
