The upper bolt is still decrepit as of Oct 2012. Can use a nut or blue tcu. Oct 10, 2012

Deserves more stars! Great pro and variety. Hanger is a total spinner on upper face so bring very thin gear for the thin crack just above it to help ease the pucker factor since you just conquered a wee runout.

One CAUTION though! Loose block on face (chalked and homeplate size) below roof is ready to fall off so try not to drop it on your belayer. We left it in place Mar 5th 2010, but it's really ready to go. Climb safe. Mar 10, 2010

This is not a bad climb and the final little roof protects very well, albeit strenuously - the roof might be the technical crux but I seem to remember being very worried going up the thin crack below it - Lowe Balls come to mind.... Jun 13, 2009
