Mostly easy climbing (5.8 or so) with one hard move at the crux bulge. The move is fairly height-dependent but is pretty near a bolt. Other than the crux, the route feels easier and less sustained than most of the 5.9s here.


Second route on the first wall, just off the descent trail. Just right of orange-colored 5.11.

Agreed that the bulk of the route is easier than .10 climbing but the bulge itself gets you thinking. Nice enough route and seems to be available when many others in the area are not.

Wish I could give 1/2 a star. Wouldn't give it a bomb because I've done far worse, and can't give it a full star, but this is a 5.7 or 8 with a single move of maybe 10a or b.

What can I say, I enjoyed this route a lot. You guys are right about it being an easy 10b for sure. But even though the rating is based on the cruxy bulge, it's still a fun climb!
