5 bolts, to a set of shuts. Scramble up a short dihedral off the ground, to a good stance at the first bolt. Continue past two more bolts, and through a small overhang, to a good rest on a narrow ledge. Continue up to another bolt at a small bulge, climbing straight up the face above, to a large roof with the last bolt at the lip. Pull the roof there, and finish at a pair of welded cold shuts. With varied & strenuous climbing, this is an excellent, and engaging, route.
