Good route, fun lip move. Bolts only where you need them, could not find any gear. Also, there seems to be two third pitch options; to the right with two bolts or let run out to one bolt. Its also possible to rap from the Angel Falls anchors on top of P2.

Linked the first two pitches of Redneck Cartel to the last pitch of this. Quite the headwall when climbing narrowly between two waterfalls! Pure NC style; protection appears only when the tears might start to form.
