Fantastically fun route! With positive, sharp flakes and vertical climbing before the final section of positive and greater quantity of holds. You can see from the ground the business area is long distance between the 2nd and 3rd bolt, undoubtably why there isn't another bolt in that section as the FA probably just kept on going for a better flake/stance to drill. Something I'd like to hear about (M&M please share). 1st bolt Leaper hanger with button head, 2nd bolt with two stacked nuts on the stem.....

Crux was well beyond the 2nd bolt and not a place you'd want to take a whistler from. Sadly, this will remain a TR for me as I flat don't have the head to lead it. YYMV, try it! Oct 27, 2013
