[Hide Comment] Some of the bolts seemed to be placed a bit off from where the climbing movement naturally takes you. Spacing seemed a bit far too.
Just my 2 cents. Feb 23, 2007

[Hide Comment] Not too bad. Good holds lead up to a left slanting hand crack. Bolts are in funny and forced places, but the climbing is good... just clip 'em when you can. Enjoy the mini crux up near the top. 6 bolts to shuts. Mar 4, 2007
duh
[Hide Comment] Two of the upper bolts could be moved to the right, closer to the climbing. I've thought about doing it, just haven't yet. Sides I hate fixing somebody else's route. Still, might do it if I have a drill handy, I'm at the wall and I think about it. Apr 9, 2010
