Fun slab climbing past 5-6 bolts lead to a large ledge with a two bolt anchor. One bolt on first pitch added by subsequent party without permission of FA party. From the ledge chose one of the three 5.8 finish cracks. This route languished for years with one bolt and a sun-bleached sling. I have no idea who started it (Houser,...Laeger?).
The first pitch is protected by bolts, the second required a small standard rack to 3".

I replaced the existing bolts (hangers were painted blue) and anchor in 1998 or so and at that time there were only 5 bolts on the route.

Somebody, who shall remain nameless, told me they added a bolt up high where it was a bit runout on 5.8. Maybe he was just trying to get a rise out of me! I did paint my hangers blue back then, so, if all the bolts replaced by Chris were blue, maybe none were added.

I remember leading this in 1992 at the urging of "my friends" and being shit scared. Holds up well over time.
