Bolts, a finger-sized piece wouldn't hurt to place between the 1st and 2nd bolt.


Just left of the Whipping post area, this route starts in a dihedral then veers left onto a bulge to avoid some bushwhacking. Getting to the first bolt is committing, so consider stick-clipping. Once there, the second bolt is pretty far away, and you have to clip it off of a crumbly hueco! The crux is well protected bouldering over the bulge above.

Typical of sport routes of this era, this climb is an adventure! The moves are interesting, but there is some back rock, and it's not a very attractive route. Not a "must-do" route!
