Description 

Hubble is the right-most climb on the east face, and after pulling a small overhang on good holds you'll be faced with steep slab moves along an arete with a somewhat contrived crux at the top.

Decent climbing on this route but the bolting could be a bit better.

Protection 

5 bolts, bolted lower-off

Not a great route. The bolt spacing is kind of weird, and the crux is very contrived and just not all that fun. I wouldn't waist my time on this one again.

I thought this route was super-fun!

Good moves throughout...I agree that the bolting was not the most straight-forward, but it forced you to do some interesting moves to gain the anchors. Turned it into a fun use of the available features (especially the last bolt forcing you to move left).
