I think that's me climbing the route before I ...


Steep face leads to an obvious open dihedral below a roof and horizontal crack. Clip the permadraws and traverse right along the crack to the next bolt with chain. Feel free to place a small cam if you like or just dig in and reach for the good holds. Smear and step up right to the small ledge then continue up the seam then left to the rap anchors.


Right of Window of Opportunity and left of Owl Eyes.


Quick draws (small cams and nuts are optional) what ever make you feel better.

Would be nice to have a 5th bolt reachable after the roof traverse instead of having to place pro in one of the finger cracks.

Only other issue was the dirty holds, but that seems ubiquitous in this area, making the climbing much more difficult than the given rating.

Risking some hate here.

I think this route needs to be re-bolted. WERE ONE TO FALL going to the anchors, which involves a very weird move over the bulge, the leader risks a huge swing, possibly hitting a ledge on the way down. I've led it twice now, and frankly, with the way it is currently protected, I tell everyone I climb with to avoid the route. I'm eternally grateful to whoever bolted it, because it is a really great climb with fun, varied, and sustained movement, but this thing is really scary.
