Did you actually get on this route James? I bet it hasn't had a bolt clipped in 15 years. Pretty hard as I heard from those that did get on it. Jul 17, 2014

I did. I wound up bailing after several bolts. The holds are very difficult and not so positive. I thought it was an interesting climb none the less Jul 18, 2014

Scamper up and traverse a grungy ledge to obtain the first bolt. In an about-face the ledges and choss give way to near-vertical, sparsely featured, solid face. Dance with your fingers and toes over edges, crimps, and nubs. After a brief exhale at the forth bolt, decipher a disappointingly smooth lip to reach a recessed crack. Trend right using large edges and a horizontal crack past two bolts to the summit.

6 bolts to recessed anchors shared with Valdez is Coming. We found it best to belay from the ground, as opposed to the ledge, directly below the first bolt. Dec 8, 2014
