Description 

Thin climbing, a little heady getting to the anchors, a 4th bolt might calm the nerves, but it was chopped and never replaced. Easy climbing above the third bolt, despite the runout.

Protection 

3 bolts.

There was a live wasp nest in the crack between the 2nd and 3rd bolts today. Watch those fingers!
