|The cam placement (yellow alien size) is after the final bolt in the horizontal, flaring crack that is somewhat of a resting hold. It is not entirely necessary, but if you skip it you do get a little ways above that last bolt for the final crux.|

-According to Tony Mayse, the first ascent was Duane Raleigh and he originally led this thing on gear, which is both astounding and terrifying.
-For the piece above the last bolt, I placed an X4 .3/.4
-The feet aren't "sometimes slick if it's been raining." They are slick as snot even when it's dry as dirt.
-This is a very safely bolted route for the Wichitas. I fell all over it. I look forward to working for the send.

|Duane's ascent was totally sick. He gave Tony Wilson permission to bolt it and IMO created a fantastic route. I always carried a #2 or #3 TCU for that last part because it would be terrifying to fall there on the last bolt!!|

|I took 3 falls from above the last bolt on the final slabby section. The fall was 100% clean and I walked away unscathed. It was slightly unnerving, but your really don't need supplemental gear up there.|
