This is an exciting, airy route with fun exposed movement. There are a lot of hollow flaky spots but there's also enough good rock to keep the fear factor low. The most exciting part of all was the one bolt anchor!!?? Though the bolt looked good, I left a stopper as a second piece just to be safe. To supplement the pin and bolts I used stoppers and small cams up to a #1 Camalot. Apr 5, 2014
