This is the 30 ft route to the left of the 4th class. It starts on top of the boulder, has the bolt visible that is discussed on the 5.5, and another bolt hole above it. From the information I could gather online, it used to be called the warm-up route.

No it's not. Bolt Route has lots of bolts and some chains on it, and is on roughly the opposite side of Courthouse from Standard Route, which is the 4th class route to the top. Also, with all the old bolts and probably a number 4 cam, it would only be x-rated if you fell off the 4th class slab at the top.

Wolf is correct, I would call the route PG13, was able to get a yellow met in at the start plus clip the bolts and got a few more pieces up top. Overall kinda fun
