No longer shares anchors with Bloody Impaction. Can be led safely trad, heavy on the cams, and a long runner.

If using the anchors for Bloody Impaction,there's much less of an issue with rope drag when TRing this route. When leading this trad, theres placements for #4-1, then it gets a little thin for gear at the top, but that parts pretty easy.
