This will be a great route once it cleans up. The rock around the crux seemed pretty iffy, I cleaned a couple golf ball sized chunks off.

Did this route again over the weekend. Either it's cleaned up a bit, or I'm just used to loose holds, but it seemed a lot better.

The crux on this thing is pretty much rotten choss. Scary to think that it has "cleaned up." At least it is very generously bolted.
