This route description must be old. I climbed it december 2014 and the bolts are good to go!

All bolts have been replaced. Did the 1st pitch only (crux) but never felt it harder than 5.11c

The badly corroded bolts were replaced with SS bolts in February 2014. 12a grade is for staying right over the bolts at the crux. Easier (11c) if you use the right hand edge of the face at this point (7th bolt). 10 bolts to anchor.

I agree with 11c on the first pitch. Felt about the same as an 11c onsight I snatched on Arizona limestone.

Excellent technical face climbing over new and very safely spaced bolts.
