Description Suggest change

This route had a reputation as a sketchy lead before the block forming the first 20 feet fell down. Since the block fell down, there is no gear for the first 20 feet, which is pretty tricky 5.10 climbing that should be bolted as it has not been led in it's current state. 

The first half of the route is fun as a toprope and I believe it's worth fixing up, possibly as a fully bolted route that ends in the middle of the cliff. The top half starts with contrived face climbing past the single bolt (much easier to climb the crack that's within reach to the right), then leads into easy ledges that form one of the most popular nesting sites at flatrock for seagulls, which should probably be avoided.

Protection Suggest change

Nothing at the beginning, then some bad gear, then a bolt, then better gear. No top anchor.
