Well worth doing if in the area, this fun route starts up a flake to reach the generously protected upper face which is sort of an easy version of Bebop Tango. Two stars out of five.

Gear belay and downclimb to climber's left.


Just right of Swiss Cheese.


Gear to 2.5", 4 bolts (3/8")

A great warmup for folks on their way to the shorter wall. Buckets below lead to thinner face moves above. Well protected by four bolts.

I agree this is a fun climb to do if you are in the area. Bottom is fun and secure; 5.6 to 5.7ish. Top is balancy on small holds;5.8ish? I guess that's what the + in the 5.7+ means.

Agree on the well-protected bottom and balancy top, but not PG13 (and I'm a chicken) - good one for aspiring 5.7 leaders. Well-bolted and you can always bail if you have to since you can collect gear from the top. Can always top out right to avoid the PG feeling.
