This is a wonderful route. It is a little spooky for getting to the first bolt with a serious ledge fall if you blow it. I did the run the first time I led it, but more recently, after we did the 5.8 to the left, as we lowered, we clipped the line into the first bolt and pulled the rope, which stayed in easily, leaving the first bolt clipped. Schweet. This is a good deal more challenging than the left route.
