Comments: The danger from the last bolt run out is negligible. If route is PG13, than so is Elmo's Fish in Sinks.

Comments: I think that was Ben Sear's route to the left, it was red tagged while he was cleaning and working the route, not sure if it still there or not.

Comments: The fifth bolt was still missing the hanger as of April 2016. Makes for an excited ending at the grade....

Also, the bolts wiggle and are loose. Yikes!

Comments: Good climing on good stone. Agree with J-Row in the comments, the bolts on this one are a little oddly placed, but all and all, a fun route worth doing.

Comments: The route has been replaced, along with various others on the wall thanks to Central Wyoming Climbers Alliance rebolting efforts. These were replaced by Sam Lightner Jr. with bomber glue ins.
