Description 

Slightly better than its neighbors on this wall.
Very popular. Get there early on a busy weekend for a quick warm up or else risk waiting in line.

Work your way up the nice face past a slightly blanker section about 15 feet up (crux), then up slightly easier rock to the anchors.

Location 

The left most of three bolted routes on the face just right and slightly upslope from the large shelter cave (Narcissus Cave). Look for a wet or stained spot about 15 feet up.

Protection 

6 bolts + 2-bolt anchor.

CONDITION REPORT 
Just a heads-up. The nut on the second bolt needs to be torqued. I hand-tightened as best I could, but I wouldn't rely on it until it has been properly tightened.

If just the nut is loose, it's fine to climb on - no need for alarmism. Just hand tighten it after cleaning.

Any hanger on any sleeved/threaded 5 piece bolt is subject to expansion and contraction. If you climb primarily bolted routes, a good piece of kit to have with you is a small crescent wrench. If you're not lugging around a trad rack, then a small wrench shouldn't be that big of a deal. I'm not disparaging anyone that doesn't do this, but there seems to be an awful lot of posts that state "loose nut" or "loose hanger". We all depend on fixed protection on sport climbs, and there is no "service department". NRAC does a great job, but they focus on bolts and routes that are in dire need of TLC (a good example is the route Ghandian Dilution at lower Meadow). A loose hanger isn't a priority for them, nor should it be- especially when it's so easily fixed. We all climb on the stuff, therefore we all contribute to the wear and tear. It's time we all stepped up stewardship to at least a minor degree. Carrying a small wrench is an easy way to do that, and leave something better than you found it.
