Crux is pulling roof.....long move on decent holds


Farthest bolted route to the right, in the hole.


5 or 6 bolts two open hangers

This route currently has 5 bolts I think. It felt very safe, actually the last bolt requires some care that you don't Z clip. The open shuts at the top are a little rusty but seem solid. Nov 23, 2015

I had no issues with the way the route is developed. The only possible bad (non-air) fall I saw was missing #3 and swinging back into the vertical section below #2. It would be possible to swing your legs back into the rock falling onto #3 or #4, but really only if the belayer is keeping the rope taught while you ascend past the protection causing a wrecking ball effect. Unlike most climbers when going through a crux after the last piece, ask the belayer to keep a small bit of slack out so that it softens the fall and directs it downward instead of on a pendulum with the last draw. BTW, the route has only 4 bolts and 2 open shuts for anchors, not 5-6 bolts as stated. Nov 27, 2011

Yes, excellently bolted. This route is a classic. The first time I ever got on it I melted off the anchors and, well, the phrase "come on down!" resonated with me... Aug 15, 2011

This route is well protected. Hate to disagree with both of you. Mar 6, 2011
