BETA PHOTO: Jeff Engel updating route with glue-ins 08.27.11 -...
I guess this route has cleaned up some since I was on it, in maybe 2004. Folks are now actually enjoying it (see comments below). There you have it, an updated description (2011).
Bolts. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.

I thought it actually had some fun moves, albeit dirty from never getting climbed. I was a little uncomfortable lowering from the anchors, skinny chain tightened directly to the bolt with no hangers

i'm sure this is on the list for anchor replacement... if you are interested in helping out, you can volunteer your time or give $$ to the MCA so we can buy new hardware.

I replaced anchors and all running bolts with GI's this weekend - 8/27/2011. It's in great shape now. Fun route

Finally went up this again THANKS to Jeff for replacing the old crappy bolts. I think this is a great route, one of the better 11b's I'd say.

The bottom of this route is awesome. Hope this gets more traffic.
