Comments: Not a good idea to call this a sport route just because it is all bolted.

Falling at the 3rd bolt (the 2nd bolt on Nitroglycerine) will result in a bad fall back into the corner and onto the slab below. Sure it can be led but it can also be soloed, which is probably safer than leading it the way it is unless you just top-rope it.

Probably not worth adding a bolt as the two routes are so close together but will check it out and see.

Comments: This is an old route that used to be a serious lead with only three bolts - one independent bolt about halfway up and then two more up high where it joins Upper Moan; the FA party went back and added the additional bolts to make it a fun safe lead.

My notes say 8 bolts on this route and 95 foot rappel.

Comments: A great glimpse into the past circa 1987 - Chouinard Bod Harness, Patagonia Baggies, Kinnaloa Chalk Bag, Scarpa Superatz, Yates Screamers and Vuarnets.

Comments: A fun area to explore and get away from the crowds but be aware that many of the routes in the area are on the short side and potentially dirty from a lack of traffic.

Comments: There is a short 4th pitch (5.0) which leads to the top of the rock if you are into that sort of thing.

Comments: The second pitch is rated 5.9 and after the first bolt moves right and then up to a gear belay slightly above the bolts atop Green Arch. The easy ramp at the end of pitch 2 could be taken for another long pitch to the top of the rock, as was done on the FA, instead of rappelling.

Comments: Very sharp! Extremely rough stone featuring tiny little teeth or "pricklers". Best to wear long pants and don't even think about falling.

Comments: A great route with multiple cruxes as it snakes it's way up the face; the use of longer draws will help keep any rope drag in check.

Note that this is the first bolt line from the left with Bitten starting just to the right and joining this route at the 3rd bolt; higher Bitten breaks out left at the 8th bolt for one more bolt to anchors whereas this continues up past four more bolts to anchors.
