Unknown Left Variation aka Summer Nights
|473 page views|
This is the easier left variation of a three some that starts in a small nook of sorts up a slab.
Start up as for all 3 variations past 2 bolts, veer left on easier slabbing past 4 more bolts. Step over a small overlap (crux) and get the anchors with Mussy hooks.
You could add a bit of variety on naturally protected terrain just to the left of the start...or start on the line to the left. There are lots of options especially with routes so close together.
Others have provided a name, Summer Nights. This may have been climbed by Ed Ash in the 1980s.
This is the second from the left on the northwest aspect of this crag. It starts in a nook and branches left.
9 bolts. Possibly a bit of small gear if you do the left start.

I think the bulge at the top is awkward. 5.9 IMHO.
One could also start this route with the 4 bolts on the blunt arete to the right of the tree scar.
