The broken off cobble is not so sharp.

The climbing is harder than it looks like it is going to be through the start of the route, the holds are mostly flat but not many are incut. There is an OK rest before the final little bulge and headwall, which is a good thing since that is the crux. Looks possible to go either left or right of the bolts, I went left on sidepulls.

Every bolt on this is a spinner and/or pulled slightly out of the wall and/or rusted...great route, though.
