Description 

Face climb on sometimes bad rock between well spaced bolts. This route used to be rated 5.8. It's very likely that some holds broke off. It also used to be a toprope and probably should have stayed that way.

Location 

This is the bolted face just left of Demise of Mr Riffraff.

Protection 

5 or 6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

New Fennel guidebook lists this at 5.10c under the name Gracious Gift. I thought that was a little inflated. Definitely ill spaced bolts, I advise against falling at the second before a clip.
