CONDITION REPORT 
BAD anchor !!! The bolt I put it in two years ago is great. The new bolt that was recently put in is spinning and falling out the pin below is still good ... Short link of chain from my bolt to the pin would fix it right up ... Tried tightening the new bolt to no avail ... Just a heads up... Would have handled it but was Chainless ... DF

I liked this climb. #2 Camalots to start then nothing but 3's. Crux is about in the middle. Anchors are suspect in my opinion.

If BD #3s are your thing, this climb will be a walk-up. Those of us with smaller hands will put in more like a 10- effort on it. I was fist jamming the last 20 feet. Also, regarding the anchor, the bolts looked decent on this but the left one has the wimpiest looking chain/quicklink combo I've ever seen. Could use some love?

October of 2014 I put in a new 5 pice raw 6inch bolt an new hanger .. As far as the wimpy quick link an chine... yes they look wimpy but that QL is rated to 900lb .. I was sick of the old nest an bad bolt ... Believe me it's sound as a pound..

cleaned up the mess at anchor 4/22/16. cleaned mess of slings, added quick link to piton, used cord and rap ring. This route is quite a bit harder then a few 5.10's out there. I wish I had a #4 and #5.
