We scrambled up to the ledges below the bolts for our belay. Four bolts to a two bolt top anchor that is not equipped with rappel rings. Our leader was prepared to place gear on route but just ended up running it out a bit and only clipping the bolts. The only decent spot to place gear is between the second and third bolts and most of the blocks in that section seem detached and could come loose at some point. Felt like 5.7 to me, with the hardest move in between the first and second bolt. Jul 5, 2017

Route was bolted from the ground up and is the first to gain the top of this formation to the best of the author’s knowledge Jul 17, 2013
