First Pitch is great, and they have added a lot of bolts. Well over the 6 mentioned.

Second Pitch, is not so great. Definitely recommend a little gear for the crack for sanities sake. Right before the last bolt I would say is the crux of the entire route. The Crack is gone and all you have are places where rock is missing to slowly move your way up to the last bolt. Run out and Sketchy at best. Good luck!
