This is an excellent beginner aid climb (my 1st solo). The only semi-sketchy part is moving onto the fixed RURP, and I was more worried about the webbing on the RURP than the placement. I would recommend some small (3mm-5mm) accessory cord to re-sling the RURP. The hanger is missing from the first bolt (pirated?). Does anyone know if Keith Loeber (FA) installed the bolts as part of the original (A4) route? You can anchor off to the tree at the base to solo it. The anchor up top has a nice new bolt (Thanks J. Thompson!), a crappy nut and old slings. I backed up the slings w/ a 1" yellow one. A set of small cams (I used a #0.2 micro-Camalot, #000 C3 & #0 Metolius TCU) up to ~BD #0.5, and micro/regular nuts will see you through. I didn't use any Lowe Balls, but you could use small ones.
Thanks for reorganizing this section Leo (Admin)!

The first "bolt" is actually a rivet....on the first ascent bolts were placed to reach the cracks in the roof. These bolts were all suspect...and were replaced by an Estes local with the current bomber ones. However the OG first bolt was not replaced and instead the first move required a bat hook. A couple of years after this transpired the bathook blew on someone and was no longer usable....at which point I filled the hole with a machine head rivet.
Glad you had fun!
