Last time I was there, I found a large metal ladder at the back of the cave. I suppose one could climb the ladder and "stick-clip" the first bolt. Or you could lead up to it. Or you could rodeo-clip it. This route is a blast, and a good line to on-sight since you can see all the moves from the ground, and thus plan your attack accordingly.

i recommend a crash pad for this route just because if you blow the second clip then your in trouble

While this climb can be followed on toprope be very careful doing so because a fall from near the first or second bolt could result in you hitting a large rock behind the route.
