This 35' route goes up the face just left of the popular route Left Stuff. One might argue it is really just a variation of the latter, and some people do use the start as an alternative start for Left Stuff, but you can, and I did, climb this without using any of the holds on Left Stuff, so I contend it can stand as its own route. Although I normally don't make pages for single-pitch routes, I have here since this route is not in any guidebook.
Left Stuff is a 5.7 for the start, and I felt the start of this route was a little harder than the start of Left Stuff, with some bouldery moves, an underling, a crimp, and some balancing when standing up, so I'm suggesting 5.8, which I feel it would be in most places.
After the start, you can finish on Left Stuff, of course, but if you continue straight up, you'll find different holds and a harder finish than on Left Stuff. I'd call the rest a 5.7 or maybe a Great Falls 5.6.You'll need to toprope this route, as there are no gear placements on it and bolting is illegal here.
