Bob adding bolts to protect the bottom moves

Description 

Climbs chimney and left facing digital then head left to share anchors with Grandpa's Watching. This is not an easy lead with marginal gear at best. BOB's a bad ass for putting this up ground up. He may go back a place bolts to make it a safer route.more to come possibly.

Location 

Obvious shallow chimney

Protection 

Large to micro nuts

Cool route. We bumped into Bob and his buddy Charlie as they were adding bolts to better protect that line. Bob also upped the anchor for some extra bonus climbing. We didn't have to lead it, but it was still fun to throw down some stemming moves on TR. Thanks for letting us climb on your rope! I uploaded a couple of pics.

I did not get any pictures on the fa it was an exciting day Aaron pushed for me to get onto it and it was more than what I expected but It was a really fun ground up on site. there are five new shiny bolts to protect the sketchy sections and a new anchor set up up top I think it's good to go some has loose stuff in the chimney and be careful with the dihedral in the middle but you can avoid it on the left bye face climbing no more R
