Comments: Yes, Mr. Miller, there ARE 5 bolts.

More to the point, who's led this thing? Recently?

The first bolt I can do but protecting the thin flake seems a little too sketchy. I believe the flake would break if you took a lead fall on anything placed behind it.

Comments: Led this Sunday and found it to be pretty easy--maybe 5.6. It's fun and gets you to the anchor for Sean Penn.

Comments: Did this route Sunday--TR then lead. When you're top roping it, make sure you set a directional on the top two bolts. I found the crux to be a little bit reachy for me at 5' 7" which made it feel legitimately 10d. Taller people may find it easier. This is a fun route--I highly recommend it.

Comments: Led this today and have to say that it was a real attention getter. Placed a good .75 in shitty rock/crack--don't. The whole flake is so crunchy and hollow sounding--but it made me feel a little better getting to the first stance--which wasn't really that bad once committed to. Anyway, thought is was 10b/c until TR afterward--feels like 10a now. Still really fun and secure-ish feeling.
