This route was put up by myself and Emily Conway on January 2nd, 2009 with the idea to have a great beginer rock climb with good protection, well spaced but not obnoxiously close bolts that were easy to clip from stances, fun holds, and good rock. The climb starts by surmounting a medium-sized block to gain a no hand stance to clip the first bolt, and then pleasant climbing up water sculpted grey holds via fun sequences that would be good for a five five leader. While this route is not world class, it does add an easy climb to a great area and would be a good first lead for the aspiring climber.
It is located on a southwest-facing slab 10 feet left of "Tribal Boundary" (about 40 feet left of the 2150 Wall. This route takes the obvious, 5.5 looking slab up to the top of the pillar.
6 bolts to a coldshut anchor.

Does anyone know the name and rating of the bolted line that is about 5 feet left of this route?

Loves Me Like a Rock, 5.8; 7 lead bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

More bolts than I usually put in, just bolting in the style of Shelf Road. The send felt like I was doing more clipping than climbing. When Mark seconded, some basketball-size rocks came off at the bottom where the crack now runs into a nice shelf. Once those boulders came down, I would have bolted differently, but that is the way the rock crumbles.
