fun corner! gets really tricky right before you can grab the top edge to traverse left. could only find one hanger anchor directly above climb and had to run 30ft or so of webbing to a random anchor ontop of the rock. you should hang anchor over edge to avoid rope drag.

New titanium glue-in bolts. May want to stick-clip the first one.

Haven't climbed here in many years... Heard from a friend bolt were added? I believe this was done ground up on site. If so why were bolts added. Done with FA's OK? And whats with
10a rating?

nice pure arete with solid rock. sporty bolting not for beginners.. F6b if not bridging.
Old man Tony sounds grumpy ;), good effort rebolting the crag guys, thanks for all the hard work, much appreciation from the Redding crew. Makes for a really great weekend away for us.

I never was asked about adding another bolt to this route, the 2nd route at the cliff, after Blackbeard's Tears. But then again, I haven't lived up on the North Coast for many years.

Whatever, it's fine. The same thing happened with Blackbeard's Tears w/ the fixed anchor at the end of the free section ... it's good, however.

Yes, I vaguely recall hanging on hooks on lead while hand-drilling...
