Route has 6 bolts to the lower set of chains at which point you can traverse right to Mr. Cruel and reach the summit via six additional bolts. Be prepared to do two rappels if you summit with one rope.

Also be aware that the first bolt is some 25-30 feet up. This lower section is easily protected with 1/2"-1" gear. I also built a belay anchor as you stand right next to a steep (read with emphasis) hillside.

climbed it today and there were two large blocks at the last bolt and below the anchors that have fallen creating a mini roof (probably due to all the recent rain). I dont think this changes the grade of the climb but makes the finish a little more difficult.
