Description Suggest change

Coup D'etat is a very good, technical, albeit short route with mostly good rock. Powerful moves off the deck, with more power/tech moves for the duration. Care should be taken getting to the drilled angle. I fell there on my first go and met my belayer just a foot off the ground. There was only one bolt with tat for an anchor, so with Linus' permission I added another and cleaned it up. Hopefully this will draw some attention to an unheralded classic. Linus had a great eye!

I used a crash pad to get started, then placed a .5 and .75 in the obvious crack. After that there is one drilled angle and one bolt that will see you to the anchor. Just under the second bolt is a slot for either a purple or green c3 sized cam if desired.
