Description Suggest change

On the far right side of the slab with Ruddy Duck and Walking the Duckis a bolted line. It starts on the east end of the ledge system past a couple of trees. It is hard to pick out, but look for a bolt beyond where you think it should be. From that bolt it hits a ledge and then an easy clip, followed by another bolt, and a dirt/grass filled crack where the pins used to be. I saw one scar. Probably the one from the pin sitting on AC's dash. Couldn't see any others. A couple of pieces here go past the dead stump, to the last bolt and then slab it out. The last section is very flaky.

Protection Suggest change

4 new 3/8" bolts on this route. The pins are missing though. Well, I couldn't see them. I was able to put a #1 Camalot in the first part of the crack, and then one shaky nut. No anchors here and not much to set one up. Good luck. I put a directional in and traversed left to the one bolt/tree anchor of Walking the Duck.
