When we climbed it "yes" for P1 (that's Mark Meschinelli on the lead). There had been some talk of placing a bolt to protect the climbing just below the P1 belay, but I don't know if that's happened. (NY DEC [Dept of Envir. Protection, the "keeper" of the Adk Wilderness] and all, you know.) Maybe check with the guys at the Mountaineer (climbing shop in Keene Valley) or Ed Palen at Adirondack Rock and River (B&B) to see whether said bolt ever "appeared" on the route.

My recollection was that without the #5 Camalot it was pretty run-out 5.6-5.7 face up to the belay stance, but placing the #5 in a flake/crack next to it was helpful.

My recollection is Mark used it, then we just hung it from the P1 anchors and picked it up on the way down. Jul 3, 2016

rgold - not really. If you can stomach the ratty pitons below (the crux of the pitch), then you probably won't mind the run out to the anchor. And, no, there are presently no bolts on the first pitch. Jul 5, 2016
