Thin moves (crux) off a boulder pass the first bolt and lead to better holds higher. Pass a horizontal crack and finish on nice plates to anchors at the top of the formation.Originally done with just two bolts (the 1st and 3rd) and gear in the horizontal it was later retrobolted to make the route better protected for climbers at the grade....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
