The best route on the Western Front just got better! The middle section now goes directly up left of the big bushy ledge (which it used to detour onto). An extra bolt has been added, and one moved over a bit. The route is now more sustained, safer and a bit harder (solid 5.9 now, not 9 minus). The new upper crux involves a tricky hidden hold, easy if you find it, desperate if you don't....
There is also now a backup bolt above the cold shut top anchors.
