This route is around the corner from scarface. The anchors are visible and are 45-50 feet up. The route follows a right-leaning flake/crack system in a right-facing dihedral. Mainly fingers, thinner at the top. Although this route is short, it is worth doing. There is a two-bolt anchor with a chain.
#2 camalot, 2 X 0.75 camalot, 0.4 camalot.

This is a nice warmup route that receives morning shade. I racked up on double 0.5, 0.75, 1, and 2 camalots though I prefer to sew it up on lead.

I agree, I led this climb the other day and placed a 2.5 tec friend, one BD #1, two BD .75s, and two BD .5s and that was plenty for someone just getting into leading the thinner sizes. Keep an eye out for the foot holds out to the right, they will give you a bit of a rest.

FYI the left (lower) anchor bolt was extremely loose and wiggly on 11/24. I was able to tighten it back down, but it will likely come loose again.

Awkward start to great thin hands and fingers. Definitely look for good smears on the right. Awesome warmup/intro.
