Comments: As of 1/3/2012, there were some insecure sandstone flakes between the 3rd and 4th bolt. They were capable of supporting weight vertically, but I recommend being very careful that you not pull out on them. Also, you belayer might consider a helmet.

Comments: As of 1/3/2012, I recommend bringing a stick clip for the first clip if you aren't solid on 5.9+ climbs. The clip is just high enough that a spot isn't all that helpful and the fall is onto uneven rock.

Comments: If you stand back on the trail to the left of the climb as you approach, you can see the 5th bolt. From the bottom of the climb, it is certainly hidden by the crux.
