Description 

This is the classic overhanging bolt ladder on LeConte Boulder. All of the bolts are bomber. Two bolt anchor with chains up top. This is the perfect route to get your overhanging aid skills dialed in on. It is pretty popular, so if it's occupied you can go right around the corner and get on The Hooker, which is nowhere near as steep but offers several bathook placements and an old bolt or two.

Location 

This route is on the overhanging back-right side of LeConte Boulder, visible from the LeConte Memorial parking lot.

Protection 

Free biners or draws for bolts.

OK OK, A6?

I'll change it to A6, or maybe WI42- 6B+, class 2.

I just copy other ratings. Like you said, it's a bolt ladder, so does the rating matter? C'mon guys.

From John Middendorf on Bigwalls.net:

A0: Also known as "french-free", using gear to make progress, but generally no aiders required.
A1: Easy aid: placements straightforward and solid. No risk of any piece pulling out. Aiders generally required.

Looks like aiders required here.
