1st bolt is actually in the grey rock then follows up the orange stain. It would be easy to accidentally start using the first bolt of "You Call It" as its first bolt is in the stain.

7 bolts with easy ground to chain anchors. Dec 22, 2006

There are a few cool mantle moves. It does get a little run out at the top where there is a small crack, but in my opinion there is no need to bring any cams. Solidly 5.9 Jan 18, 2011
