|Good route.....Getting to first bolt on lead isnt that bad, just do it.....This is also the first pitch to yellowstreak 13a...another 5 bolts after anchors|

I respectfully disagree with the above comment..
Getting to the first bolt isn't bad if you're solid on the 11c or 13 extension, but I wouldn't really recommend it to a mid 10 leader.
That comment is 8 years old though, so maybe a hold broke. I climbed this route to get to Tsunami (which is excellent) and I backed down from the move to get to the big flake at the start a couple times thinking "really? I need to do a gaston high step move 10 feet off the ground to get on this thing?" awesome.
Not a bad climb, but it's 5.10 neighbors are better climbing and more protected.

|I had fun on this route, but I really can't get behind the idea of having almost a 30 foot runout while only being about 30 feet off the ground. Sure, it's easy but I found the gap between bolts 3 and 4 unnecessary.|
