some feedback after climbing this. First pitch very runout. it was very very easy, but was heady because of the runout. there is one bolt before the anchors, i was able to place two pieces of gear as well. the second pitch goes straight up to the roof to a single bolt. the only tough move is the roof. goes 5.9, the the rest of the route is 5.5ish. i thought the 1st pitch was fun and great to setup on TR for other to climb. second pitch in my mind, not worth the one fun move on the roof.

The first pitch probably R/X rated since none of the gear before the bolt at 50ft will probably hold a fall. I placed two tiny RPs, a 0.1 X4, and slung a small flake.
