|Easy first clip. Directly between the first and third bolts is all friction and smearing. This is a place you will really learn to trust your shoes. Good idea to bring a helmet, runners for top rope, and spiderman.|

|Best to make the easy clip and then climb from the low arete. Bolt #2 is strangely far left... looked like old holes closer to the corner. You will find new trust in your shoes between 1st and 3rd bolts if you're leading, and theres a nut placement to help with that.|

Route starts 5.8ish and then moves left past bolts 2 and 3 on pure friction which seemed much harder than 5.8 on both on lead and TR. The climbing at and past 4th bolt is 5.8 again.
If you skip the 2nd bolt and continue straight to 3rd the route is R but consistent at the 5.8 grade.
Seemed silly to take it out left.
