Eric cleaning his first desert 5.9 lead
A short, boulder-problem start leads to a long slab with thin edges and friction moves. There is a low crux off the ground and another crux about halfway up. And let's be honest, it's probably not good to top rope this route or the Slab Route to the left. The sandstone is soft and you can see many rope grooves here already. Rapping, instead of lowering, would cause the least impact on the rock.
Right of Slab Route (5.7) about 40 feet at a small alcove with an angled calcite strip in otherwise maroon colored rock.

It is harder than 5.9 going from the first to second bolt in my opinion. In a recent wall street guide book the bolted slab route to the right is listed at 5.10 and this climb is just as hard. Both are fun climbs though.
