Many parts of this route are very often wet, so save yourself the hike if it has rained in the last few days.

As of 12/2012 it appears I Abuse Profen had the bolt upgrade; this route's bolts looked rusty. Either way thanks for the upgrading!

Hey Mike, we definitely replaced all the bolts except for the goofy/non-critical directional bolt located at head hight. They are all stainless hiliti's but may be painted (can't remember). The crux bolt is a 5 incher and extends throught a hollow flake that the original bolt likely did not.
