Description

Then crack to a ledge, then face. Lots of loose rock on the ledge. Anchors are shared with Coming Attractions. Then crack can easily be protected by a single mid sized nut, as the first bolt is only 20 feet up or so.

Protection

Gear to 0.5" and 3 bolts to Mussys

Adding pins is just bad policy. If you are doing it for some safety or pussification reason, just put in a bolt. Pins are a BS safety addition since they frequently fall out, usually when someone is really counting on them. I've seen it a hundred times on routes all over the place... suspect pins on a bolted line, in a bolt heavy area. It makes no sense. Just Sloanify™™ the damn thing and be done with it. Mar 27, 2016

Added 2 fixed pins to protect the start (see photo), as well as new anchors in a more direct line (Mussy Hooks). Mar 27, 2016

I thought the crux was getting to the anchors on the top. Fun mixed lead though. Apr 30, 2010
