Description 

This route is the route located on the upper tier of 'The Blonde Formation'. Although the guide says 7 bolts for this route, I came across only 6. The scramble to the base of the route includes a lot of loose rock and a 4th class section onto the actual rock, this is a bad place for your belayer to be if you fall, so perhaps try to belay from the ground somehow, may be difficult. The first bolt is a little ways up so be careful. This route I give 1 star if it were a little cleaner, as it was covered with a layer of sand/lichen when I climbed it, don't think it sees much action. The holds are fairly big, but nice and slopey.... Have fun and bringing a brush is recommended. Cheers.

6 bolts - 2 bolt anchor.
