Old bolt on Gun for the Sun...classic buttonhead w...

Description 

Start on corners/cracks to the left of As the Wind Blows obvious corner. Up through discontinuous cracks (mealy-ish rock) then to the first bolt, then a long run to the second bolt. Exit left to sling anchor atop Through the Looking Glass. Or, continue straight up (thin! ~5.10a/b) to horizontal crack (which can be downclimbed left to the aforementioned anchor).

Location 

Cracks to face left of obvious corner of As the Wind Blows.

Protection 

Standard rack. Two bolts. Note that these bolts are pretty old and buttonheads (although appear to be 3/8" buttonheads) and the second hanger is an old Leeper. Good candidates for replacement.

Protection Update/ January 2015 The old bolts have been replaced, thanks to Kevin Powell (and the ASCA for donating the hardware)
