Comments: Ryan, there's always been a bolt on P3. Unless you saw 2 bolts, in which case that would be very unusual.

Comments: I don't believe this is a serious lead (serious to me means R or X), and here's why: Putting aside the runout at the top, you can place bomber gear always with the previous gear at your feet. The runout at the top is at the lesser grade of ~5.7, and although a fall from there would be BIG, it's all air, and the gear that protects this runout can be doubled and tripled up.

You don't get gear above your head for all the hard bits, so from that perspective, it is more engaging than some.

Comments: I thought more like 12a. The only crux is pulling the roof. (I don't recall being stressed in any way below the roof.)

Comments: This is a totally under-appreciated route...lots of stars! You can avoid the wide start (and the need for wide gear) by climbing on the right of the offwidth, then stepping left across the top of it.

I've never seen anyone on it, and it seems to have escaped notice by those that climb the grade.

Comments: The lower chimney is often used as an alternative to P1 of Pegasus, and is quite fun. The upper corner has been pruned and is pleasant. It's definitely better than it looks. It's also an excellent winter route with great protection.
