Route goes up/right to third bolt, then up/left to 4th bolt, before joining the adjacent route. Jul 28, 2017

Couldn't be sure of where this line actually went. Tried locating it based on the description here and the picture in the actual guidebook. Perhaps the third bolt requires an awkward/contrived series of moves out to the right and then back?? Otherwise this is a .10a R that climbs straight up on good pockets. Jun 7, 2013
