Climbed at parkline today and got on a sweet bolted seam that passes over a few roofs. It's not on here and in the new Yosemite guide book it only has 4 bolts and doesn't end. It is located between The Unchaste and psyched zypote. Any help would be appreciated. It was alot of fun.

How hard? How long? Can you take a picture from here or the book and draw the line on on your phone? Would be cool to check out.

Woot!

No. Number 5 is psychedelic zygote.

Now we're getting somewhere! Thanks, Looks good! So you need two ropes to rap that one? (I know the FAist of Unchaste went back and added bolts and a mid-pitch anchor, so that folks can rap that one with one rope).

I hope people think it's odd that when people establish routes in our national parks, specifically when they install permanent hardware, they are not required to report these installations anywhere. I'm not saying that folks have to post it up on MP here, or send one of the guidebook authors(like me) a topo. But maybe logging the route with the NPS Research Library in Yosemite Village might be a start.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
