Like a Wonk, Botonga, and Leave No Trace start about 100' left, down and around the corner. Free at Last starts below a prominent V-dihedral about 20' right of Leave No Trace.

Was here today and saw someone putting in a new bolt on what looks like Free At Last. Hopefully this was a replacement and not someone altering the existing line? Nov 3, 2007
