Rachael on TR on Hollywood Tim

Description 

A fun route on the Sponge. Getting to the high first bolt is the mental crux of the route. The physical crux comes between bolts three and four. Named for Tim Rutherford, a very fun LA 1980s guy who often wore white leather shoes (thus the Hollywood reference courtesy of Mike Schillaci).

Location 

The right-most route on The Sponge. An obvious tramped out area marks the start.

Protection 

5 bolts to two spring loaded Fixe sport anchors.

A really enjoyable route! The first bolt is a ways up there but the climbing to that point isn't too difficult. There is a vertical crack to the right of the line down low that can be used to protect the lower section.

Very nice route! Tricky crux if you don't know where to look...
Was up there this past weekend and found that somebody replaced the anchors with nice, new springer hangers (thanks!). It's been awhile, but it appears that somebody also added a bolt to the lower section of this route.

I left 2 draws on the route sometime in July. If you found them I would like them back if possible. We had to bail during storm:(

The bolt just below the crux, when you get on the arete, is questionable. I don't remember what the issue was, I just remember thinking "I probably shouldn't fall on this."
