Comments: As of August 20, 2016, there is only one fixed nut. Small cams, especially offsets, work well to protect the bottom half.

Comments: Great route. The bolts could use a refresh as the post crux bolt is a spinner, and most of the hangers have an aged look. It's a mix of wedges and sleeves. The anchor could use a make over too as it's sporting webbing now w/ perma biners.

A few critical large holds on the route are slathered in glue which detracts from things a bit.

Comments: Thanks to all those who voted and took time to give input. Both applications passed, and Park staff will most likely be issuing permits soon. Looking forward to both of these gem routes getting updated hardware.

Comments: The drilled piton at the start of P1 is actually epoxied and bomber. I tested the pin w/ a very large hammer (i.e., 5 lbs) and funkness, and it didn't so much as flinch. The eye is not cracked.

Given the epoxy, replacing it with a bolt will be difficult as using a blow torch to melt the epoxy could damage the rock. I would be inclined to leave the pin alone until it shows signs that warrant replacement.

Comments: Classic benchmark .10-, Indy Pass, face climb. Just off the deck make the first clip and enter a balance lieback with a critical, right smear. Once you dispatch the low crux, enjoy the steep train and killer incuts above trending a bit right until the last clip where you move a bit left and up to the chains.
