Replaced the badly worn original anchors with 1/2" X 4" bolts and Fixe rings. We left one of the original open-shuts to clip into for re-threading. The stance is the same but the anchors are a bit lower in good rock.

"Sumac" offers fun and committing moves up the steep wall left of the obvious crack. The route is clean, but each hold should be carefully assessed for dependability.
8 bolts to shared anchor (shuts) with "Morning Glory."

|Liking this route more and more as it cleans up. Like Ben said, steep and committing, but not really that difficult. The final bolt directly under the sumac bush is camouflaged and a bit difficult to spot. There's still some loose rock inside the crack to watch out for. The face is pretty clean. Our new favorite warm-up route on the wall.|
