Can feel a little harder if one dilly-dallys around. Fun route, good warm-up.

On 12/7/10, the LVCLC with support from the ASCA replaced the last two pro bolts on this route along with the anchor. All bolts are 1/2" x 2.75" SS 5-piece. The anchor is equipped with quicklinks and rap rings.

Cool video. It's a little hard to tell but for some reason this looks more like gelatin pooch than pump first pay later.

That video is Gelatin Pooch for sure. I can see the glue-ins for Pump First P.L. next to it, in video through the lovely scrub oak branches.
