Shares anchors with P.D. Time. The anchors are wearing thin from people toproping so please use your own equipment. The start of this climb may feel tougher for those with less reach. Sep 18, 2009

It should also be noted there is serious potential for groundfall on this climb. It's at least 15 feet from the second bolt to the third, though on relatively easy terrain. The guide claims bolts were added to prevent groundfall? Easy, but very scary knowing the rope wouldn't even be tensioned as you hit the ground. Jun 24, 2010

i've got nothing against R rated climbs, but the bolting on this climb is weird. there is huge ground fall potential, which is okay and you're assuming that risk if you lead this route, BUT there are two relatively closely spaced bolts up on top (where the climbing is easy on jugs and you really don't need two bolts). it would be much better if that top bolt was placed about 6-8' above the 2nd bolt. nobody would miss the top bolt, a fall on the bolt just below would be fine, and there would be no decking potential.
