Very cool route...4 out of 5 stars!

This pitch is sooooooooooo long... no send for me but got the rope up there. Hung once in the middle and a bunch at the last bolt...just when you think your done. Broke a nice sidepull at the last bolt. Next time!

The second bolt seems questionable, hollow rock. Even with 18 bolts there is a bit of a runout down low that a cam might have been nice.

Rope drag can be an issue if you use all short draws, especially with the crux at the very end. It's a good idea to clip several of the bolts with shoulder-lengths.
