[Hide Comment] The free route is called 0.6, and it is 13c. My understanding is that Dave did not add bolts to this route. The two bolts were from aid climbers, as they really seem to be in the wrong place for free climbing (especially the second one).

0.6, by the way, is unique in the fact that it may be the only route in the East with a 5.13 chimney crux on it. May 27, 2009

[Hide Comment] I'm not sure exactly where the bolts came from, I was told it was from the free attempt. I added a bolt to the anchor thinking of a second pitch (all I did was think about it) and did not clip the bolts on my aid ascent. The bolts are unnecessary for aid climbing and would take away from the fun. As a free route I don't know how the pro would be. Scary! May 28, 2009

[Hide Comment] Sounds like the bolts should be moved then. If they are going to be there, they should at least be in the best spots, n'est-ce pas? Jan 13, 2013

[Hide Comment] Maybe after the second ascent... I was just rereading my post and Jay's, he chimneyed that groove!!! That being said this route free or aid is one of the most beautiful routes on the cliff. Still needs a second pitch, hooking or face climbing! Jan 16, 2013

[Hide Comment] If the bolts are not needed for either aid or free- they should be removed Jan 16, 2013
