|The bolt spacing is nuts on this route. You can get a marginal stopper threaded thru a horizontal constriction between the 1st and 2nd bolt (I saw this on rap, I don't know if I would have found it trying to onsight the thing). Actually clipping the 2nd bolt is a pain, but then the next one is three feet away, go figure.|

I think it was bolted on lead long run out on the easy turf, and bolt ladder on the tuff section. I really liked the climb or the top half any way. The bottom is run out, but if you climb 5.11+ it's no issue because the holds are huge. The real fun starts after you hit the second bolt steep side pulls on small crimps.
I also did a variation that started in a seam to the right of the climb, it ends below the hand crack top out for Great White Crime. Bring ballnuts and RPs for the start then place a yellow cam and go left to the second bolt for the sporty finish I would rate the variation 5.11C/D PG 13.
