This route has some really great moves that require using some really questionable rock. Belayer beware. The route will clean up over time most likely changing the rating.

By the time I got on this one I had wrapped my head around the potential looseness of the place but the flake left of the 2nd bolt still boggled my mind. Especially when I stepped on it.
Anyway, this is another good line with super technical insecure moves around a bunch of questionable rock. Definitely worth doing and didn't feel R if you take your time and carefully choose your holds. An all-points-off double dyno to the flake might land you in the bushes though. Have someone take pictures when you go for it!

Cool rout on questionable rock. Most of it isn't too hard; with the exception of the whole middle section where you have to move off of a crappy side pull and through some akward positions until you finally reach the juggy flake that feels as if its going to rip off the wall at any second. Then its just a few sweet moves to a nice big jug at the chains. Good luck to who ever rips that flake off, glad it wasn't me!
