Description 

This is a new route on the south side between the main wall and the Tool Wall. Watch out for lots of loose rock and guano. The route needs a lot of cleaning!

The leader and belayer are highly advised to wear a helmet. Also, when rapping off, be aware that there is a bit of a swing when lowering (around the 2nd bolt), and you need to watch out for the tree.

Protection 

10 bolts to 2- ½”" shuts.

BEWARE.. ROCKFALL has hurt at least 2 on this route!!!

As of recently, this route is pretty well cleaned. Climbed it a few times this past week (8/4/12) with absolutely no problems with loose rock. Guano is still present but avoidable and mostly cleaned from the holds (mid-route).

Fun route, great for photos. Many thanks to whomever bolted it.

Fun long route. No move is harder than 10a, but it stays steep the whole way. Route has been cleaned and now climbs well.

Second bolt is loose.
Watch out for falls onto ledges!

Climbed this route recently and thought it was a lot of fun. It's clean for the most part, though there are a few larger rocks about halfway up on a ledge that should probably be pushed off. All the bolts (studs) were solid, but a few hangers were loose, and the right anchor bolt spins. I can't recall which bolt, but about 2/3 up one of the bolts has created a crack radiating from the hole. The bolt seemed solid though. There is still guano, but I didn't have any problem going around it.
