Description Suggest change

This route is in the little alcove across the canyon from the virgin painting. It is the right-most of the routes in the alcove.

This route starts with a sequential boulder problem right off the deck, then eases considerably. The first bolt is so low, it is pointless except to redirect the rop. I recommend stick clipping, or using a good spotter.

I thought [this] route was pretty easy, but a friend couldn't do it, despite two days of working it. Bob D'Antonion says "hard moves to start and hard moves to finish"...maybe I bailed right too early, because I didn't think the finish was hard.

It's another one of those great Penitente routes that make you think "if only it were taller...."

5 bolts...recommend stick-clipping the first 2.
