This route is only so-so, despite it looking somewhat appealing from the ground. The crux is contrived, making it only worth doing if you're looking for a warm-up for the routes to the right.

On 12/7/10, the LVCLC with support from the ASCA replaced the all three protection bolts on this route. All bolts are 1/2" x 2.75" SS 5-piece.

On 12/5/13, the ASCA replaced the anchor on this route with 1/2" x 4.5" SS 5-piece bolts and equipped them with quicklinks for rappel.

Nothing exciting, but a decent warm up lead for the others to the right or a pretty good and short route for beginners.
