This route is deceptively difficult for a 5.6 (Or I was off route which is certainly possible). But at the start, moving to a small roof, moving left found me wondering about it's rating. Once around the roof and it felt 5.5/5.6. The best part of this route is the start. It can be done moving up from the left side as well. But that would take the fun away on a pretty uninteresting climb. Something to do while in the area doing the better climbs. But not one to seek out.

Crux is at the bottom. You can pro it, but then moving up past the roof can feel awkward and sketchy. I did this one three different ways at the start. Around the left makes it a 5.5. Straight up is a 5.6, but tough to protect some smearing moves over the bulges. Go right (right under the big roof) then you can pro it and it is still a 5.6 (just very awkward). Finished by setting up as a TR for the kids. Very nice warm winter climb.
