This has now been bolted straight up from the third bolt. No way is the route still a 5.9 going up from the 3rd instead of left to Two Timer. Mid 10s at least. Oct 21, 2017
Does anyone know much about this route as it is today? I assume it has been retro-bolted, since I think there are 5 bolts, and the beta of going left @ the 3rd bolt didn't make much sense to me. Going directly up felt pretty stiff for 5.9 to me, and I didn't see many opportunities to place protection if it was indeed previously a mixed route unless you go hard left to another crack or to the right at the ledge where the current 3rd bolt is located.
