Description 

This route is just South of Smear Campaign. There are bolts right where you need them. It is a good route that seems to be getting just a bit harder than its original rating.

Location 

Scramble up to a 1 bolt anchor in a scoop below the central wall. Book says to rap with double ropes or a 60 meter, but a 70 meter works better.

Protection 

10 bolts with 3 bolt anchor.

Fun route -- a little more varied than "Smear Campaign" to it's right. Bolts and anchors still look good. Worth the climb -- thanks for putting it up, Stewart!
