if it had more than 2 bolts it would be boring. Apr 30, 2017

This is a fun route with slabby moves to the first bolt and wonderful thick plates that lead to one more bolt within the plated section. Two bolts total and shares the thread anchor with the Unknown 6. My pard suggested Platy Galore for a name. I also like Ham Platter in keeping with the crag's theme.

I forgot to mention that several of the plates are slingable after bolt 2 if a leader is scared by the distance to the anchor. I have led, repeated and free soled this route. It is definitely no harder than 5.2. Five of my friends led it this past weekend (3-26-16) and all agreed. Apr 5, 2013

May 28, 2012, I have replaced all the missing hangers on these 2 routes. Only having 2 quick links and no rings, the anchor hangers have one link each for rapping. Bring your own draws for Top Roping.
Also, there are only 2 bolts on this route, with the top being somewhat runnout but very very easy. My guess is bottom goes a little harder than 5.2. May 29, 2012
