CONDITION REPORT 
As of 9/17 the right anchor bolt was a wobbly spinner. Its a shame to see poorly placed hardware on new routes.

Was giving it 4 stars in the guidebook some sort of joke?

WTF is this? If for some reason you get suckered into this do your self a favor and just walk off before going up the arête. What a waste of hardware.

Whats with the the plated hardware on the anchor? Why is the anchor way over on the bulge instead of where you can stand and belay. There are many whys about this route. Like why was it bolted?
