CONDITION REPORT 
Good news: Erik Wolf and Skip Vasquez put up new anchors for this climb.

On another note: Does anyone else think this is a total sandbag for 5.8? I can think of plenty of 5.9's that are not as hard. I think 5.9 is a fair grade for this. Newbie 5.8 leaders beware. You're in for a real fight.

Anchors are kinda sketch, all three "bolts" are worn about halfway through

As BAd stated, we replaced the worn open-shuts with Mussy Hooks. We were able to re-use the far right bolt, and added one more bolt to the right of that - making the anchor clip a little easier.

A very fun steep climb. It's balancy and sustained on small holds but it's all there and well bolted.
The 5.8 rating is a bit "old-school" IMO and will definitely feel harder for a beginning leader.
