Description 

This isn't my route, but it popped up in the last 6 months. So I thought I'd log it in.

It is a perfectly good route on a narrow slab with "modern" bolt spacing and good flow. The rock is pretty solid in the water-streak, more friable in the overlap/roof, and best on easier ground to the new anchors. It is a nice addition to the area.

Location 

This route is on the right side of the formation, directly left of the big left-facing flake (Chris and Pete's Wake Up Call) black waterstreak with the modern bolts through the overlap should be obvious.

Protection 

8 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with rings.

FWIW, I found this easier than Stitch of Time.

Nice route with more a more sport route spacing between the bolts, nice addition to the crag. The only friable rock is around the 6th bolt near the overlap, and the worst is easy enough to avoid.

This is a good route. I only gave it two stars, because the rock is friable in spots. It is nice to have a Platte route with modern bolt spacing. I wonder who has been bolting here?
