Takes 11 or 12 draws, plus the anchor.

When you get to like the 8th bolt stay left around the mini roof/arete thing. Its a little blind but once you pull around it you can spot the next bolt.

Nope, 60m should be fine. Have fun, this is a great route!

While you're there, check out Blackjack, just to the left. It's steller! Particularly the 2nd pitch! You can link the first two pitches with a 60m, and just barely rappel all the way back to the ground.

Cheers,
Cory

Not really the 5 star route the guidebook suggests, but definitely a good warmup that lacks loose rock. And it's long.

Just did this route for the first time yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. Super fun! I was a little worried when I reached the top though when I found the right of the two bolted shuts to be not only spinning but placed in hollow and flaking rock. A huge fall on just this point would surely rip it out the wall. Would recommend leading this route rather than top roping due to the sketchy anchors. Enjoy it out there and be safe!

Andrew.....what would precipitation a huge fall on the anchor, let alone on the single right shut? Also, if you suspect an issue with the anchor leave the last quickdraw clipped to the rope as backup, regardless whether you're leading or tope roping.

Fun and straightforward. The roof is no biggie.
