This is a great route, but the 'hangers' are down-right scary. They almost look like hand cut sheet metal (not like other angle iron hangers in the area) bent 90 degrees with a hole drilled in them with no markings or ratings.
In addition, the third bolt at the end of a large runout that protects the crux moves will flex with a light bouncing from a static hang under my weight of only 140 lbs.
Nice route, but be careful.

|8 bolts with groundfall potential around bolt 3 and ledgefall potential in two places. The new guide says good pockets after the first ledge, and that was true, but they ran out pretty quickly making clip 4 pretty desperate and 5 a little less so, and one of those weird sheet metal hangers held my 190 lbs. for a couple of falls, but they are a little disconcerting.|

|Great route! I took the fall on the last clip on the middle headwall (5th clip?). Super clean and fun fall. The hangers seem good to me, 165 lbs. 5.12a.|
