Can be protected safely enough without the pitons, though I clipped them anyway! May 20, 2016

We called this one "User Friendly" There were no pins or bolts on it and no sign of previous ascents or an anchor on top.Given its grade and the fact that I remember soloing it and down climbing it multiple times I,m pretty sure someone had done it before. Maybe some Native American. Rob lemon and I did this about 1981. Nov 30, 2015

Not a bad route in my opinion, two pretty cool sections, one near the bottom and one near the top. Dec 12, 2013
In addition to the one bolt, there are two pitons. Jul 28, 2013
Use the same chains as for "Hydroponics". Jul 1, 2010
