D, bolter is unknown but screams Ralph Schmidt to me. I don't recall coming to a conclusion about how this is supposed to climb. Could be broken holds. Aug 21, 2017
Does anyone know the line the bolter intended for this route? I assume the climb to the right of bolt 4 and then straight up to bolt 5? I couldn't figure that beta out this weekend and was wondering if that is the line people are saying it 11+. Thank you. Aug 21, 2017

I don't believe this route is contrived but it certainly hugs close to the crack route in the middle section between bolts 2 and 4. The climb would be legions harder if the climber attempts to climb the blank like face right of bolts 2-4. There is no feet over there and only a very desperate series of under-clings for the right hand. Jun 15, 2017

This contrived squeeze job really detracts from the crack next to it. If the second and third bolts were several feet to the right, it might climb as it's own line. Sep 26, 2015
