Two great bolts on top of this climb.  While the bolts look solid, they're both on a single boulder that looked like it wasn't going anywhere but I elected to back it up with some cams in other cracks.

Not sure why this is only getting a 2 star rating. from most of what's out there is a great climb! Very slaby and the gear is very good after you get past the bolt section. Not sure why the last bolt is up there when the route should have followed the left side crack the whole way, but whatever. There are two belay bolts on climbers left at the top, look very new. There are also belay and rap anchors on climbers right as you go follow the right facing undercling flake at the top, but I'm not sure how far the ground is and we opted for the walk off. Great route if you're around there!
