The route starts easy and quickly involves good footwork - smearing and occasional small edges. Fun moves in the thin, crux section. Eases up after the crux to good holds and good feet.
There is a single bolt at the crux. On top there are two good anchors. Walkoff is easy and to climbers left if facing Playhouse Rock. Not what I would consider a beginners route. Can be top roped with draws/slings/cordelette etc...

A decent route that, despite the name, offers reasonable protection. The bolt was replaced spring 2000 and is 3/8".

Fun route. You can place a medium cam under the roof. Still, I wish this climb protected better; it's a long way above the crux to the next placement.

The route is good value ad to the area. Protects better than it looks and the slab area after the bolt is somewhat tenuous. It's good and both times to the crag never saw any traffic other than ours.
