this is the description i had posted under hinterlands... i mean nothing by posting it under this one other than the fact it might be helpful...

Description
Weird as hell to find but the climbing is pretty cool once you get there.... I did find it to follow a weird line but it brings you to some neat moves on cool rock...

After the involved approach climb a chimney corner to the first bolt.... Make delicate moves out right... Avoiding the loose flakes to the left of the 2nd and 3rd bolts... From there climb balancy moves on good holds up the face before the route jogs right up a steep juggy face and finishes with a really cool mantel move just before the anchors...

Maybe a good route to seek out when the crowds descend on your "quiet out of the way crag"...

Location
If you are hiking up in to the right side gully at Hinterlands walk to the right wall of the gully and look for a slightly beaten path to a scramble right... Climb down a ladder... Scramble up on to a ledge and anchor to a tree (or the glue in anchor the book mentions that i couldn't locate)

Protection
11 bolts to anchors.... the lower off rings are the thin aluminum type so they may need to be replaced with steel sometime soon...
