Wasn't sure if this was a 5.10- or a 5.9, since the grade varies depending on your sources. The overhang feels slightly harder than the typical 5.9, but there are great holds to be found all of the way up. Love this climb, one of my favorites. It is in the shade from 11am on, the holds are lovely, the climb is engaging with a lot of great options, and you'll never run into traffic out here.

EDIT: There is a loose hold on this climb; about a head-sized rock is loose it is about a foot to the right of the 4th bolt. Careful!
