One of many challenging moves.
The historic "original" difficulty grade in the West Point guide was 5.10
The historic route description was:
"Climb over three overhangs just left of “salt & pepper” route. Climb basically a straight line just left of small tree by rap/belay station near top. Can finish to top of PI Wall."
Could set up Top-Rope by making a short rappel from above the top of the cliff down to the anchor bolts.

. (between "Message to Garcia" and "Salt & Pepper")
The historic Start description was:
"Start right of the Message to Garcia/Channel route 5 feet above a “blonde” window of missing rock about 12 feet up."
Bolts. Years ago there were 11 bolts, but I have not checked to see of that count is still accurate.

Still 11 bolts (including the 2 for the anchors). The third overhang is much smaller; crux is at the first overhang IMO, with a physical undercling. Route felt a bit harder than the nearby S&S Left.

At my height the obvious line through the first overhang seemed very reachy (I didn't get it, on top-rope). I saw another bolt near the right side of the first overhang, so I tried that, which was not easy, with wicked slippery sloper hands to ledge above.
I sort of remember other reachy slopy stuff in other sections ... so if you're tall and like to make friends with slopy holds, you might enjoy this route.
