[Hide Comment] Total shame how many bolts there are on this route. Very much does not fit with the ethos of the Gallatin:
- The first 4 bolts are literally within an arms reach of perfect crack and pod cam placements.
- 2 of the final four bolts are within an arms reach of cam placements under overlaps.
- The final bolt (hidden from ground) is only there to protect a 5.4 mantle with another bolt just a few feet below.
- There is a huge tree like 4 feet back from the edge for an anchor. And there is a casual walk off to the left.
With a bit more vision, this could have been a stellar mixed line (certainly a handful of bolts through the middle are necessary to keep it from being R/X). Instead, it's an okay sport route. Aug 1, 2020
