Crucifix is a good route, but not nearly as quality as its neighbor, The Steeple. Start on the thin spire to the left of No Mystery Here (5.7). This route is on the right (uphill side) of the spire. Follow a bolted line up which joins the Steeple (left) for the last 3 bolts.
9 or 10 bolts, 2-bolt anchor with chains at the top.

Lots of tiny crimps. Your toes will throb. Resist the urge to head right of the bolts.

This is not a 5.8. I'm all for old school whatever ratings...blah, blah, whatever, but if the route to the left (The Steeple) is also a 5.8, then you guys are just a bunch of sandbaggers. Please keep the ratings consistent.
In regards to the loose bolts, I found only one spinner, but the anchors looked shiny and new. I would, however, be slightly scared at falling on this, since the rock is extra sharp and could scrape you up pretty badly.
