Bolted face crux coming up

Description 

This route is located below the main lookout area and can be led or easily toproped. The beautiful face is extemely striking and starts at double thin cracks and moves into a right facing corner (crux #1). Placing pieces in these double crack seems like it would cause extreme rope drag. Pro it just under the roof and punch it on good but pumpy holds. Move into the obvious layback flake and then to the upper bolted face (crux #2)

Location 

Under the main lookout area

Protection 

A few cams for the bottom up to #.75 camalot then a larger piece for the flake, #2 camalot. Quickdaws

Got to watch Kirk Brode send this epic climb. Looks phenomenal.

Any body else feel like the first and 2nd (moving up) headwall bolts are unnecessary? There's plenty of pro near the bolts. Just my humble opinion.

Agree with the first and second bolt being useless. You can slam a big cam once you reach that flake.

Great route
