|first bolt is ~25 high and felt like 11 moves to get to it. the book mentioned a number 3 friend--if it was to make that section safe i did not see a place for it... i would recommend clipping the first bolt on your rap in. great moves on the face.|

|What a great route, might go at 11d. As far as getting to the first bolt, there is a spot under the miniroof (down and climber's right of the first bolt about 3' or 4') where you can place either a #3, #1 or both. Obviously use a shoulder length sling for these placements. Also, a .75 Camalot is nice for up top were the bolts are fairly well-spaced.|

Amazing route! Really fun and unique movement.
With JoMo's beta, #3 and #1 camalots extended under mini-roof give confidence for making the fairly stiff moves to the first bolt. .75 camalot nice for upper section but it's 5.10 up there.
