Description 

Somewhat of a 5.11 testpiece for the Mammoth Area. Crux is right above the first bolt, and through the second bolt. Climb a steep, technical bulge, that might require a somewhat dynamic move (it did for me being 5'7) for two bolts. The route then eases over to a slab above this, which serves as a rest after the crux. From there, the route continues up for 8 more bolts with a few tricky 5.10 sections. Lower off.

Protection 

10 bolts to cold shuts

Another great route of the area. Once past the bouldery start it's pretty much a cruise to the top, which makes this a good candidate for those breaking into the grade.

I found clipping the second bolt from below fairly hard. Much easier to go for the jug and clip the bolt once you have the jug.

I did this route a few years ago and remember the second bolt being a little manky. Really fun route though.

yeah, tricky clip and a loose bolt. Go for the 3rd!

Did this route the other day. Really nice climbing. Definitely a candidate for some bolt replacement down low. Rusty, loose bolts on pretty severe moves...they are probably the original bolts and have obviously seen a lot of action.

Excellent route.
