Under the Radar

The second route from the left of four bolted routes.
Start a bit to the right, moving left to clip the first bolt, then climb thin edges (crux, 5.7+) to easier slab climbing past 2 more Bolts. Traverse right across dike, then straight up a steepening friction slab past 4 more bolts (5.7).
The rock is grainy, but improving with every ascent.
7 bolts, 2-bolt anchor, 70 ft.

Another good route, which will clean up to be a well traveled and enjoyed route. Bob does it again....

Led this route last Saturday and it was surprisingly fun and very clean. My friend Cate was thrilled to do this on lead as an onsight!

The bottom crux is edgy and crimpy, whereas the crux at the top is palmy and smeary. Good route, well protected and solid for this 5.8 toproper.
EDIT: Starting directly under the first bolt is edgy and crimpy, starting to the right is more typical of the route.
