that must have been unreasonable for two obviously reasonable fellows like yourselves

I pulled off a pretty hefty sized rock on this today. Nearly took out my belay. It was pretty scary to say the least.

I would suggest all climbers wear a helmet in this area due to a little loose rock, and the occasional brief case stones. Great Route for sure!!! But tread lightly.

Mighty hefty for 5.11a, was pretty happy to get the red point on this one finally.

How many bolts?

There are 14 bolts plus chains(16 draws total). I ended up extending 3,4,7,and 8 to reduce dope drag. Spectacular route, my favorite 11a in the canyon.
