This route goes up then diagonals left. This diagonal is the crux, where ground fall is an option if you mess up. It is rumored that somebody has decked on this.
All the bolts have been replaced and now sport shiny new hardware. Thanks to the replacement party, I was stoked to clip that brand new bolt/hanger. Make it through the diagonal and the rest is fairly quick.

. Not as serious, but better. Good Route.

Pins, tie-offs, a rack. A sawed off angle or two come in handy. The largest piece is a 3/4" angle.
