Great route. You can hit the deck from over 25 feet up if you fall while clipping the fourth bolt (on the roof). If you bring a 1 or 1.5 inch cam and a long runner, I think you can minimize the risk.

On 2/8/11, the LVCLC with support from the ASCA replaced the anchors on this route with 1/2" x 2.75" SS 5-piece bolts and equipped them with mussy hooks.

Would be very exciting without a 1" cam! Very good route. But honestly pulling that roof is like... 10a. The harder moves are elsewhere on the route...

Great climb, really feels like a trad climb when you get to the crux. I brought the cam that others suggested, and although it wasn't totally necessary, I was glad to have it. Shoulder length sling for rope drag

Seems that this route is described as having one more bolt than it actually does. I looked around in the cave for a good 2 minutes before having my buddy carriage up a 1" cam on my rope to protect a pretty bad fall if you don't pull the roof correctly.

Other than that I can't complain about the routes fun factor. The face climbing at the beginning is definitely the harder part.
