Hey Blake, there are a few old school bolted lines, that are hard to get a read on from the ground because of "overgrowth" from trees close to it. Toula has a couple listed in a Cheap Way to Fly, but that only confuses the situation when you are at the base. Talk to David Bloom, because way back when he wrote a guide book/pamphlet to the area which was his first foray into the world of guide book publishing.... There are some striking lines, but even some of the bolts are questionable. I think, one day, this place will get a modernizing overhaul hopefully with the full graces of the FA parties. But by who and when, I don't know. It's a ghost town right now. Feb 5, 2012
leo henson put up a route on the kodachrome spire in the late 80's called 'mamma don't take my kodachrome away' that went at 11+/12- and was way good! surely his bolts are still there, and i remember the anchor on top being a problem- wrong spot, no good, something like that. do this route!
