This is an awesome route. Tough first section to the lip. Get over the lip for a rest and work up to the bolts. I really enjoyed this and can't wait to go back and actually lead it.

The anchors for this route at the top are sketchy. Its one open shut hook and one biner. The biner is worn down dangerously thin.

I just did it today and I didn't think the biner was all that bad; it doesn't close all that well, but it wasn't worn terribly. The open shut is solid.

The anchors are nice new closed shuts, but both nuts on the bolts were really loose. I hand tightened then, but they need some locktight or something.

stepping over that lip put me in a cold sweat. One of the top 5 malibu routes, seems to be easier than nipple denial syndrome to the right.
