A great warm-up or easy lead for someone getting used to the sharp end. Well protected with obvious moves and fun climbing.

I took some friends out to follow this yesterday (10-23-12) and when I reached the top the anchors are trashed, especially the right anchor. Someone must have wanted to do a tope-ropeathon and wore down these anchors quite a bit. Just an FYI for those looking to do this climb.

I took some guys that are both roughly 250 pounds and I did not feel comfotable with the possibly falling on this anchor. I will be replacing this and will update this post once it is replaced. I just need to figure out how to replace anchors, I have never done it before =X (if you have adivce or something let me know.)

Someone replaced the anchor bolts on this route. Nice new bolts with two rings each are up there now. Looks like one was placed in one of the old bolt holes and the other is in a new hole as one of the old closed shuts is still up there (turned upside down).

Might be better to rappel off this route instead of lower if you're really paranoid about rope wear.

I like this route quite a bit. If you stay in the bolt-line, it is sustained and exposed for the grade. It is also a great route for teaching someone to clean anchors. The "teacher" can clip in and sit comfortably off to the right while the "student" stands on good feet right in front of the anchors.
