Great warmup route for an experienced leader. I would shy away from this lead for the novices just because of the cruxy first bolt clip and the potential hill tumble if you miss it.

Three good bolts to two solid anchors up top. The anchors are on the vertical wall with good angles for a top-rope belay setup. You CAN walk off this route if you wanted to but it's a bit hairy.

You can find this route immediately to the right of Unknown 5.7, another very popular route on this wall. If you walk around to the south face you've gone too far.

Really enjoyed this one. Tough start with a fantastic pull finish. Though short, this one is worth seeking out.
