Eyeball this thing carefully, as the undulating bolts are hidden well in the sunshine. Be sure to go straight up for a few bolts, then look for the sharply right-leaning bolt line to the top from there. A fun way to get in more climbing after topping out on Squamish Buttress, but nothing to write home about. Apr 20, 2013
Before this thing was retrobolted you could get in 3-4 pieces of gear, despite claims to the contrary in the guidebook Jan 14, 2010
