|We did Broad Border and then linked it with the upper pitch of Behavior Issues. Routes are new and it feels like every hold is going to come off. This will get a little harder as it loses some of it's marginal holds. Overall well protected. Had the belayer tied off to the bolt 15' to right with the end of the rope to keep them from getting pulled off in the event of a fall.|

a very nice climb that climbs decent rock through a path that barely avoids bad rock. get off route a little and you'll be pulling off holds for sure. well protected, stay just left of the bolts most of the way and you'll be fine.
it's probably best to belay from the ground and pass the rope up via stick clip or toss it down after climbing up to the ledge (it's a long walk up to the ledge).
