Pitch 1. 9+, 13 bolts.
Pitch 2. 8+, 11 bolts.
Pitch 3, 9 , 10 bolts.
Pitch 4. 10b, 16 bolts .
Pitch 5. 9, 9 bolts.
Pitch 6. 8+, 8 bolts.
Pitch 7. 10a, 13 bolts.
Pitch 5 and 6 can be combined without much rope drag. We used a 70 meter rope and skipped/extended a bolt or two.
Per Tal M: the start of pitch 3 has a belay station about 20 feet to the left of the anchors for pitch 2. Don't go to the right, you'll see another station and two bolts early, but it quickly turns into a mixed route.
Towards the left side of the amphitheater is a short chimney that you can scramble up. You'll see two bolts at the start of the first belay.
The first pitch is a well- bolted slab the goes up and to the right and then cuts left again towards the top of the pitch. Just follow the bolts to the top.
