The is a great route to climb while passing by on the Wonderland trail. For a bolted line at this grade and height, it can't easily be beat by J-Tree standards. The bolts have all been replaced (except for the first) recently to 3/8" and are spaced well. The rock is a bit loose due to lack of traffic so tred carefully. Be careful: on the last quarter of the climb, the route moves to the left... start this process early and avoid (what I did) climbing up a wonderful flake that turns evil at the end where it's thin and loose making it hard to move back to the left to clip. You'll find the crux to be the final 3 bolts. Enjoy!
