this new route isn't in the guidebook and at the start of this route is a tag labeled "Lula Mae 5.6" so I thought this would be a nice 'walk in the park' warmup for our group, but the opening moves are actually a bit tricky. we eventually realized the tag must have been referring to the trad route to the left of the bolts.

If you are a 9 or 10 climber, don't walk past this one thinking 25 feet isn't worth the time. It won't take long and it will be worth it and spicy if you don't stick clip it.

Surprisingly pretty fun for a 25 foot 5.9.

Tough start for a 5.9....

It's definitely a little spicy without a stick-clip, at least for a 5.9. Some easy, bouldery type moves that don't suck nearly as much as most of my group seemed to think. I thought it was kinda fun for a 25 footer.

Tough start. Bring a stick clip. It was sustained for 25 feet. Lots of tricky moves. Good climb,very tricky and bouldery. First 5.9 I couldn't send in one try.

Very fun, but seemed a little tougher than a 5.9. Still pretty easy and lots of fun moves and interesting holds for a 25 ft climb.
