The only route in the area that has bolts on the face of the rock.
A neato sustained crux awaits above the 1st bolt, and continues over the roof.
Clipping the last bolt is NOT advised, as it looks old, and just clipping it probably makes the route 5.11d. Also, it will unnecessarily create excessive rope drag because the reach to the top anchors is about as far as the reach to the 3rd bolt.
Walking off the top is probably best, as it will save your rope some wear.
Falling in the easier sections below the first bolt and before 2nd bolt is not a good idea.
3 bolts to a 3 bolt top anchor.

The third bolt is junk, but the fall on the second is clean.. at least it was, the second bolt doesn't look too good, but it held.

Needs new bolts. If you want to climb this just top out and walk off, or toprope it!
