Comments: I like the old bolt better. It's more terrifying! Did you try free climbing through the A0 part of the climb?

Comments: Do people really enjoy this route? Whoever bolted this route avoided an attractive and fun blue streak that goes straight up the wall and instead bolted left of the blue streak in some of the crappiest looking rock on that side of the wall. I would be interested in rebolting this route, because the Girl Scout Wall needs at least one descent moderate rock climb. It is silly how it is bolted. I thought this route is garbage. Any objections?
