Unknown route is called " Sweeping with Mr Brownstone" First ascent was by Todd Madson and Scott Robertson in about 1992. The route starts 1 crack to the right of the Yellow line on the topo photo, climb straight up to the 1st bolt then climb up and left to the 2nd bolt then straight up to the belay. ALL of these BOLTS are 25years OLD!!! Use with extreme caution! As I remember the bolts were 3inch bolts, but again they are very old! We rated the route 5.9 but we were young and in shape. the Belay/rappel bolts are 3 incher's and we put the chains on Again these are 25 year's old On the top of the climb the bolt that is in the black rock went in like butter so watch out! 2nd pitch crack on the left side of the face we called it 5.7 but the start of the pitch has a little bit of a runout on it. We called this left hand route "Substandard" 5.7 1st pitch 5.6, 2nd pitch 5.7 or one 120ft pitch climbing past the first ledge and bolts. First ascent of Substandard is unknown Probably Jim Kanzler and crew in the 1970's

Thank you Scott! I thought the bolts/chains were still in ok shape. Maybe the dry climate out there? The bolts didn't seem that old. Perhaps someone has replaced them since you placed them?
