The 5th bolt is still loose on this route and unable to be tightened. The first four chains no longer have biners on them. They were gone when we arrived.

EDIT: (5/21/15) Was just back today. Someone put brand new biners on first five draws. Thank you Simon. May 16, 2015

The chain link on the crux bolt of this thing has been eaten quite a ways through by the hanger. Could use a new link, and I'd hang your own draw in the meantime. Jan 2, 2017

This thing could really use some glue-ins.
Couple of bolts are really getting flexy/loose May 12, 2018
Some of the bolts on this route have been replaced with ASCA glue-ins. May 22, 2018

In my humble opinion, this goes at 5.12a to the first anchors with the optional 12b section at the top. I wouldn't necessarily recommend the second section, but the climb to the first anchor is awesome stuff and a classic. Jan 13, 2019
