I left a biner on bolt 3 to help for cleaning on the lower, because that swing out sucks and I was too tired to TR it after climbing it. If anyone wants it, go for it, I bootied it in Italy on my honeymoon last year.

I've removed the cleaning biner as fixed gear in the park is illegal.

Sweet thanks bro. I recommend cleaning this route by following rather than lowering.

With the right tactics cleaning this on lower is just as easy as doing it on TR.
