[Hide Comment] I believe this route has 5 bolts but is the third route on the left wall (East Facing) in the upper Black Corridor. Aug 12, 2006
[Hide Comment] This route has had the bolts recently replaced. 1/24/11 - I replaced the anchor with ASCA 1/2x3.75 w/ rings. Jan 25, 2011

[Hide Comment] This route is mostly straightforward, but it's a hell of a lead for a shorty! All 5 bolts were just out of reach when on the ledge or obvious easy stance. Last bolt is hardest but only real safe fall zone, since the rest is all ledges. If you're maybe 5'6'' or under, you're likely to struggle to clip in the intended spot and will have to claw your way up a bit to reach. Wish these 6ft route setters would think about other people for a change, it wouldn't hurt to clip at head height guys. Nov 7, 2023
