Really nice route. The lowest bolt has been clipped (not sure why) so there are only 3 bolts on this route. The top has three bolts for anchoring.

Fun lead. Haven't done this for a year it's easier than I remember. Easiest 5.7 trad/mixed route in PP or McDowells. .5 and .75 BD C4 and three quick draws protect this.
