To khoa's comment - as of a couple days ago, THIS route is fully bolted (based off the picture shown), but the one up the hill 20 or 30 ft does only have 2 bolts and the anchors are set pretty far back. There is also a route 20 or 30 feet downhill that has a single bolt, and I assume the rest is trad. Mar 6, 2017

Currently all bolts are there with lowering anchors. Great pitch! Sep 4, 2014

Climbed this yesterday, and I only saw 2 bolts (out of a supposed 5?), and the anchors don't have rings, so you have to clean and walk off.

You can definitely deck towards the top, because your last bolt is around the arete before you pull over onto the left side. So, please be careful if doing this route. Jun 27, 2012

Climbed it yesterday. It is a fantastic route. The holds at the top make you want to cheat left off the arete.... May 4, 2011

Saw this post recently and not sure what's being said here. It has been a while since I've climbed these routes. BD's book perhaps has the line drawn (#2) a little right, more like North Face Route, a 5.12 top-rope we did during that period of time. Easily deciphered though. I am hoping the bolts on Bobby's Wall have not been chopped. I'll go check it out at some point. Have had a lot of good feed back from people who have really enjoyed these routes over the years. Such a nice, isolated spot. Feb 10, 2011

Bob D'Antonio's new guide shows the line in the wrong spot. There is a line going up where Bob's book indicates, but it is not worth climbing. Most of the bolts on the line to the right of Adam's Arete has been removed. Sep 20, 2010
