Matt is right, although clipping some of the early bolts is a bit of a challenge. Climbing up high is on some hollow flakes and a little spooky but HUGE fun--nice exposure.

The book says optional 1" piece - I didn't see anywhere for a placement that would have proven useful and/or necessary - in other words, you're fine without it.
Fun climbing with only a couple iffy sections of rock. Dec 14, 2011
