Can't miss it, walk past chicken fingers and 25 feet diff eq. and look up.

Even with a single #5, it still felt like I could have used a second one. Great route.

Updated gear as of TODAY! Approx these sizes (you decide how many)-.75 (1), two 2s, two 3s, two 3.5, two 4's and maybe two 5's (or at least one).You can walk stuff if needed. Black Diamond modern aka WTF were they thinking!

Hmmmm.....
Classic to see this here :)
Surprising really :)
But the F.A was done March of 2008 by myself and Matt Greco on lead up to a single bolt stud anchor (glad to hear that it was replaced and maybe moved higher? and I will apologize now :) for the single bolt anchor)...but we named it Guillotine because of the large flake/rock that peeled off the beginning.

Tim and I saw that bolt about half-way up what is now the climb. We assumed it was a bail bolt since it is at the crux (and next to a sweet crack) or possibly that someone didn't have big enough gear to finish. If we meet I owe you a hanger.
