All That Glitters

The crux is perhaps the first few moves off the ground or at the last bolt. Somewhat poor rock quality for the first 30 feet is protected by bolts. This climb was put in last fall.
Two climbs to the right of World Vision (just right of what is called "The Project"); located on the SE corner of the glitter box facing the canyon. Please note: a second climb splits off to climbers right at about the fourth bolt (that climb will be posted soon, I hope).
Mixed; five bolts. Small to medium cams plus stoppers. Please LEAVE anchor carabiners in place.

Same start as the awesome and super fun bolted line, "Gold" that presumably David will post soon, that peals off right after the 4th bolt. BUT, since this climb is a good warm up for Gold, it'd be more fun to just start on the project bolts for this one, or just use gear all the way, and then use the bolts for Gold. The gear on this one is a bit run out and I wouldn't recommend getting on this unless you're comfortable on LD trad climbing at the grade.

Some may consider the gear placements "poor" on this climb. I would not recommend getting on this climb unless you are comfortable with moderate (to good) gear in rock of lesser quality with longish run-outs.
