Shaking out after the crux.

Description 

Start easily up the slab below the main face. Clip the first bolt, move slightly left up to the overhang, clip the second and then pass the over hang and head up a shallow groove.

Clip the 3rd bolt and make powerful moves up and right along the quartz dike.

After the 5th bolt the climb eases, but the moss increases.

Location 

Climbs the left line on the main face.

Protection 

8 bolts, double anchors.

The route (and bolts) head right after the 4th bolt, unlike what's shown in the guidebook. Also, despite being a "new" route it has some 1/4" bolts which need to be replaced.

Yeah still quarter inchers up there. Looking at it from the bottom, the bolts seemed good to go, and the crux bolts are, but the last 3 are pretty skinny for a little extra spice. Climbing is pretty 5.10ish though so if you made it through the crux, you should be good to go. The 1st bolt is also weird, some kind of old button head or something, but again, the climbing is mellow.
