This route has a dangerous runout between the 2nd and 3rd bolts. The climbing is easy, but a fall on the mantle, or while clipping the third bolt (which is a stretch for short folks) would be serious.

The climbing is very good with a fun crux on great pockets above the first bolt, and another more difficult, sequential, fingery crux on the clean panel above. The route can be finished via the crack left of the headwall, but its more fun and NTB to stay right on the face. May 30, 2007

Agree that the runout between the 2nd and 3rd looks intimidating from the ground; however, I had no problem reaching the 3rd bolt standing on the ledge. I am over 6' tall though....

Now this may sound funny, but I did notice that hypothetically, it is possible to get a hand-sized cam in the horizontal at the Shelf, before standing on it. (Assuming you actually had trad gear with you.) Sep 28, 2009

We trundled a large section of puzzle pieced rock on top of/to the right side of the ledge above the 2nd clip. Not sure if if had separated after the winter, I don't recall it being so unstable last time I climbed it, but one little kick on the lower and it all came crashing. It's clean now, and the move up to the third, while still too long to be really reasonable, is at least done with the aide of solid stone now. May 31, 2010
