Description 

This isn't my route, but let's include it in the database. The rock on the entire dome is friable, the same as 11 years ago, but this is still a good pitch worth doing when here. It is not exactly a sport climb, just sorta typical 'Platte spacing on modern bolts.

There is no anchor at the top of this line. I strongly advise you to take a hard right at the last bolt and go 20 odd feet to meet up with the obvious double anchor bolts! (Otherwise, you will have to contend with a minefield of rocks waiting to kill your belayer.) Yes, it is a bit more run-out but safer. We easily rap'd off with a single 70m; but a 60m may work?

Is it 2 star? Well, it's doable, safe enough, longer than the others, and steep/hard enough to have your complete attention. See what you think.


Location 

This is just about in the middle of the face, left of the arete climb, Bottom Feeder.


Protection 

6 bolts. No anchors.

NO ANCHOR (and no options in what looked like an obvious seam). Avoid the minefield and come over to the double anchors.  <br /> <br />(Your second will thank you for not killing them but may curse you for the traverse?)
