Comments: Climbed the 2 pitches on 1\23\11. First belay anchor has 2 bolts, one of which has a spinning hangar. Second pitch was easy and had good bolts at the top. Most of the bolts on this multipitch climb are 5/16" grade 5.
The bolt at the bottom crux / overhang was well positioned and allowed me to lead without any risk.
