Comments: The lower crux seemed very height dependent to me and the climb overall seemed a fair bit harder then 5.11a, but I'm only 5'8 so that might have something to do with it.

Comments: The first bolt is a good 20 feet up. While the climb is only 5.7, if you don't make it to the first bolt you're looking at a pretty nasty ground fall and tumble down the mountain. While I'm not an advocate of overbolting, it doesn't make much sense to put up a 5.7 sport route that you have to solo the first 20 feet of. Maybe I should have brought a stick clip, but a bolt at 10-15 feet would make more sense to me.
