[Hide Comment] This goes as a sport line. I placed one nut under the first bolt for the hell of it, but it felt well protected after that. There is a crucial, hidden final bolt as you pull the roof that really helps to lower your heart rate! Mar 12, 2012

[Hide Comment] I did the FA of 'Tang' back in about 1993. Not sure how to get this info into the route info, so I added it as a comment. It is a great route. Apr 25, 2012

[Hide Comment] One of the best 5.10s in the park, though it is every bit of 10++. A sport route but a small 1/2" cam or so is nice for going to the first bolt. All of the bolts and anchor have been replaced as of January 2016. Enjoy! Mar 29, 2015
