7 lead bolts. anchor's two outside cold shuts now solid, with the middle one a lil loose

FYI a big handwritten warning in chalk from the day before on the wall at the start (maybe next time just write that on a large piece of rock and lean that against the base?) regarding a wasp nest high on the route. nest in a non-handhold hueco as noted in photo, already marked by chalk at its upper rim. no issue cranking past the nest on lead. wouldn't want to loiter on that upper pumpy section anyway. one nonaggressive wasp at the time. later, multiple wasps came out as followers went by on TR, but got to anchor fine to clean and get back down

My climbing buddy said two of the three anchors were loose on this route when he climbed it a week ago. I haven't inspected the anchors so I don't know exactly what's wrong. Has anyone looked at the anchors on this route recently? Jun 23, 2014
Great route! The business starts after the alcove..up good jugs through overhanging rock to the tricky sharp pocket move..then up and over and on to your feet again and the anchors above. One of my favorites at the creek. Nov 24, 2013

I personally think this is a better warm up than it's easier neighbor, Gorgeous. It's a straight forward route, a little pumpy but all the falls are clean. Overall, a MUST do if you're at Mt. Gorgeous IMHO Apr 24, 2012

A nice route with a fun crux.

Two of the three bolts at the anchor were a bit wiggly . . . Nov 26, 2010
Took Joe and I two days to clean the choss off this wall. Joe set the bolts and I led the FA. 5.10c/d. Aug 29, 2010
