|This route is OK. The bolts are kind of weirdly placed. They are not in line with the natural line (you may be looking at a 5+ foot fall when level with a bolt). That said, it is one of the better lines on the north face (at least that I have been on).|

|Agreed, this is weird route (but good). I think the bolts are placed so that one could take the hard 11 line on left, (two bolts from the top) or the 9ish line on the right. I can definitely see how this could induce tears if preceded by blood and sweat ;)|

Yes, the bolting style near the top is strange. I took the left, because I figured it was "on" (yes it could be described as contrived).
However, that flake system about halfway up is way fun! Plus the rock up high (and all the climbs here at North wall) is actually very good.
