Led this in mid-Dec 2015, looked brand new and took a few chossy chunks for myself. As more people climb it will be interesting to see how it changes as there was a lot more that seemed to want to come off on my careful way up. Also, one of the bolts was sticking waaaay past the hanger, about 1.5" out. I tried unscrewing and helping it back in but it seemed bottomed out, hoping this was fixed.

Super fun lead, bolts well placed considering the dips and dives of the rock, carefully done to protect the rope from too much friction.

Totally hop on this if you're in the area. Take a lot of draws and use a 70m (if I remember correctly). Start on the ramp on the left of where you step up and into the steep part. If you're ok with runouts, don't bother clipping too low or bring an alpine. Next time I go I'll send more beta.
