Do a hard boulder problem up to a bolt, followed by an aging fixed pin. Climb tenuous face to the Energy Czar anchors.


On outside face of Instant Karma dihedral, 20 feet right of Caterpillar.


1 bolt, 1 piton, NC trad rack

I would love to climb this route but the first(and only) rusted bolt that protects what seems to be the crux of the route needs to be replaced.

Any chance of this happening?
