Protection 

Seven bolts (all 1/2" Rawls). 2-Bolt rappel anchor.

Beware of bees on this route. Be sure to check out the route topo to see the location of a small nest.

We saw this from the road and climbed it - didn't have time to do anything else in this area. Easy climbing up to the last two bolts and then gets much harder. The rock was good but a little dusty. With more ascents, this area would be super fun. VERY well protected the WHOLE way. Bolts were in great condition.
