This is a nice climb. It is well protected during the hard climbing. However, once you come over the bulge it is a bit run out while climbing the 5.8ish remainder.

Chossy with wasps and epoxied glue, but fun. Not surprisingly, a smallish portion of the last jug hold (just before moving to face climbing) broke while I was climbing; the rock is a bit chossy and a few of the jugs have been reinforced / repaired previously. While on the run out section I encountered 4 wasps darting in and out of the huecos ... made from some interesting frogger action between holds. We later found a small portion of honeycomb nest nearby, so climber beware.
