This interesting face route isn't as runout as it appears from the ground. Worth doing but 1 out of 5 stars. The rock is good but not 2 stars worth.


A small rack is needed to supplement the 3 bolts on the route. It is easy to estimate size of pro needed from the ground.

I placed two stoppers to supplement the three old bolts on this route. My partner and I thought the direct finish above the final bolt (versus moving right) was 10d. The anchor is the same as for "Silverado." It is easy to supplement the dubious anchor with small cams.
