nicely spaced bolts, nice hand crack in the middle...


Third from the left, shares anchors with bloody impaction.

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.
