Description [Suggest Change]

This is the center bolted (lol) line. Very runout with big tumble potential, so be careful on this lead. This climbs up to and just left of the reddish streak on the rock. The reddish streak seemed to be more flaky than the rest of the face, so I stayed on the left side of it. Again, it is not a hard route, just runout and more of a head game.

Protection [Suggest Change]

1 piton and 1 bolt are fixed on the route. I sed a #4 HB brass for the first piece, the piton, bolt, #3 HB brass (didn't like that) in a thin seam, and a medium nut. The anchor is natural, and cams are very useful for this.
