The bolt is long gone.
The crux is just after the traverse. A bit stout for 5.4 IMHO.
Easiest to protect the second's traverse when led with double ropes. After the crux, move up and left (off-route). Place a cam high over the traverse and clip one rope. Yeah, it's off-route, but easy to place and clean.
The Fasulo book indicates that K.M. stays left in the right-facing corner and doesn't actually cross Wet Wall (which it says goes up the to the right). This makes sense, especially on a busy day.

|Great route. Agreed, it has one stiff move, but great pro the whole way. You can also backclean to help with drag, but you want some good pieces first.|
