On the lower part of the route.

Description 

This is a nice, long route. It has pretty good rock (least friable of the ones we did today). I recommend it.

We did it in one pitch with no noticeable rope drag.

You can walk off right or rap down to the mid-station.


Location 

This is the 2nd bolted route to the right of Party Time (obvious cleft in the center); this is accessed from the big ledge to gain the start.


Protection 

13 bolts will get you all the way to the top anchors.

The crux on this seemed to be on the upper part above the second bolt that is above the first anchor. My partner placed a tri-cam above this bolt. It is not necessary, but it makes the crux feel better protected.
