The ancient fixed pins at the anchor have been replaced with bolts. I believe the route's single bolt 3/4 the way has been replaced as well - it looks new and super solid, anyway.
Thanks to whoever took the time do make this popular climb much more safe.

|It's fun to climb this route up to the bolts then bring some larger cams (1"-3" or so) to traverse right in the horizontal crack that continues right of the bolts.|

Short route, but a little bit of everything -
- finger cracks
- hand cracks
- stemming and face moves
- slab finish
I'd say all 4 of those styles go around 5.8, so its a good challenge for a 5.8 leader. Just wish it was longer.
