Comments: Definitely no need for a #4 on this one. Single set to #1 C4 works great, with maybe an extra purple or green for someone pushing the grade. Anchor at the top of this smaller column now consists of a single bolt with chain. Perhaps the other bolt was on a now-departed piece of column?

Comments: Yeah, I was definitely hoping for that chock stone... Bring a 6 unless you want to potentially whip big. The OW felt very hard for the grade to me.

Comments: Incredible climb. You can get a blue tcu 10 feet up, but then its 15 feet of 5.8 to a ledge so the last bit is R. The rest is beautifully protected though.

Comments: Incredible. The fact that this doesn't have four stars on here blows my mind. Just a testament to the quality of the routes at the Grand Wall base that this gets overlooked.
