Description 

Steep climbing in the cave. Leftmost route in the sport cave. Take a long or extendable draw for the last bolt.

The route developers have moved on and route descriptions/details are slim. You'll have to go out and explore.

One of the fixed draws was removed by my partner as it was super sketchy. Please be aware of the state of these fixed draws as you clip into them.

Location?? Looks like a good climb. Can we expand on the description a little?

Adjectives can be our friend.

Leftmost route in the sport cave. Climbed this on 11/8/15 and hardware looks good, but fixed draws are all suspect. Clip directly into bolt hangers with your own gear. Take a long or extendable draw for the last bolt.
