Inconsistent is the best description for this route. It is perfectly bolted until its not! A great obvious line that catches the eye, loaded with awesome features. The climbing is engaging throughout and the bolts are just where you want them until at some point high on the route the style changes and stops being fun. The last, or maybe 2nd to last, is just stupid, just out of reach from a perfect stance. Maybe the rock where one would expect a bolt was hollow? Maybe Andy was running out of bolts, not sure? I am sure that the line is awesome and the features are great and the climbing is 85% very enjoyable until it's not. With better bolting on the upper third this would be a fun 5 star classic!


This route is on the right side of the upper canyon, left of Dogfishhead


12 or 13 bolts
