Description 

The left handed crimp off of the left-facing jug flake near the bottom is definitely harder than 5.9 as is suggested by the Swain guidebook. The rest of the route is mellow.

Location 

About 10 feet left of A Man in Every Pot, and in front of the rightmost of two similarly-sized scrub oak bushes.

Protection 

3 bolts (I think a 4th was added after the Brock book's printing) up to the chain anchors.

I actually enjoyed this route quite a bit....especially the upper moves; fairly continuous. Had to do it again.

On 5/19/10 the LVCLC and the ASCA replaced the first bolt and the anchor on this route. In addition, mussy hooks were added to the anchor. All bolts are 1/2" x 3.5" 5-piece.

Fun route a little ran from the last bolt top anchor, but really fun.

There is a fourth bolt, eliminating the formerly run-out finish. The first bolt is rather high; suggest either stick-clip or bring a TCU for the crack prior to the bolt.
