There are actually 2 bolts on this climb that lead to a small TCU placement at the crux.

This is a really fun climb. Thoughtful pro spaced out just a bit to make it spicy, but the placements are good and the climbing is interesting. If you come to Forgotten Wall with your rack, be sure to do this climb!

This is a nice one-I think I may have done a variation further right which protects with a #4 and the grade may ease off to 5.9 or 10a-, so if you feel scaredy, there's options. Next time will try actual route.

yeah looking at this route i though the right of the two cracks was the correct one. maybe i'll do both variations next time.
