So happy that someone could take advantage of the bolts/chains I installed left of "Biofuel" and the rockfall mitigation/cleaning performed to put up a route. Your welcome. I wasn't excited about that project at all.

EDIT: I mean right.

I apologize to Awhit, everyone feel free to get on the project left of Double Barrel Shotgun. Great 12a climbing to V9/10 boulder problem.
