Often confused as sport route, take some gear to protect the slight runout between the bolts. Or just sport climb it and call it a day, seems to work that way too.
4 bolts to a rusty cold shuts anchor. Probably yet to be replaced because it is not a very popular route, not a popular route because the anchors need to be replaced... funny how that works.

Great route with boulder problem start, wish it got more attention and the second bolt was placed better. Crux is right off the ground and easy to deck after first bolt.

FA. Wade Parker and Brade Hoover. This is a mixed line and it isn't recommended as a sport only route. It is a fantastic, well protected line if you take .5 to 1.5" gear (placements can be found between the 1st-2nd bolts, then the 3rd-4th bolts). A bouldery start with a nice face up high makes for an exciting send.
The reason the second bolt is placed so high, is to keep you off of the ledge while clipping the third bolt. Place gear at knee level on the ledge to protect clipping the 2nd bolt.
I will get the anchors replaced as soon.
