Sidle leftwards up the ramp (most skip the 1st bolt), then head up making long reaches between nice edges. The crux is a short sequence with marginal feet, but it's easily passed with a bit of technique, after which an easy bit of climbing concludes this pitch (the last bolt is essentially superfluous).
A good warm-up, and one of several popular routes in this area that see lots of traffic. There's an extension to this route called Double Whammy, 16 bolts to anchors.
Located about 80' left of a a prominent orange streak of rock that characterizes the area (Tangerine Dream). The route starts on a narrow, left-slanting ramp of rock, and shares the first bolt and anchors with Minimizer.
7 bolts, ring anchors

The climb seems to wander too much - all for about 10 feet of worthwhile climbing.

Good warmup. Easy climbing with one distinct crux...I believe moving pass the 4th bolt on two crimps to left and right of it with a blind reach to a jug above.
Usually has climbers on this route as it is one of the easier routes in the area. It was my first lead ever and I usually put people on this climb as their first lead also. Easy access as it is one of the first routes you come across after taking the hike up to the base of this crag.

The ramp part was easy. I hit a crux when the 2 routes connected. Don't do what I did and use all your energy on that crux. Past that part and you will find some really nice holds. Guidebook says its a 10b, is it?

Okay warm up, but a little short. Basically easy climbing for 70% of the route with a couple moves that make it a 10.

Great warm-up for new leaders at the quarry. I feel it's about 10a. No more, no less. Maybe 2 hard moves at the crux on crimps. Fun easy route.

I thought it was pretty fun. Take 3 or so slings to extend some of the draws. You'll see them.

Extremely awkward climbing, keep going past the anchors for Double Whammy and make the climb worthwhile!
