Great line, with clean, independent climbing for the whole 100 ft. The crux is some unusual liebacking maneuvers during the last half.

To the person who copped the anchor at the top of this........you are a jack***. Wild guess here and correct me if I am wrong, I would bet Gaines put those up when he bolted the route and the chopping was not by him. It looks like s**t. Takes some sand and epoxy and do it right for crying out loud (if you're gonna do it). There is no where to make a gear belay directly on top for that route unless you haul some #6 and #5 and build it under the boulder on top or out to climber right putting your second on course for a pendulum. STUPID

As of 10-14-2012 there are two "bolts" with rap rings at the top of this climb.

I say "bolts" because they looked more like a hardware store screw-eyes.
