This route is not really part of the same wall, but is located at the same parking lot. Climb the finger crack up the short wall by the cattle guard, placing many small cams, make sure to back them up. Climb is a little loose, hopefully it will clean up with a little traffic. There to do if it looks appealing to anyone.
This route is located about 50 ft back downhill from the yellow cattle guard. Look for the finger crack on the small fin on the east side of the road.

Saw the anchors for this climb yesterday and thought it looked like an easy 10. Fun climb, but after climbing it I thought it was a 10c or 10d. Maybe my fingers are not the right size, but I have climbed easier 10c trad routes than this.
I would be very interested to hear from others who have lead this route if you think the rating is a bit low or I need more finger crack practice.
If you are not a solid 10 trad leader you may want to proceed with caution.
The rock quality is pretty good, but there are a couple loose blocks near the top and above the anchors. One less after yesterday. I pulled a 2ft X 3.5ft block off just above and to the right of the anchors.
