Added links and tow hooks (courtesy of the ASCA) to the anchor today- the bolts had worn enough that links that used to not fit now will. Please leave these in place!!

A great climb, but a good bit tougher than its neighbor of the same grade. Not as hard as Tour, though- right in between. Figuring out the crux was a challenge, and keeping it together at the end was definitely the redpoint crux. Worth doing for sure.
