This was an onsight for me years back, seemed really scary more recently. Bolts are further apart then average Vantage sport climb, not R rated, but tricky and heart pumping.
I was standing below this 2/15/16 and a brick size hold exploded off the arete about mid way up, don't know how much this changes the route.

This is a very nice climb for Vantage.

You can see a couple spots where big chunks were ripped out of the route but the remaining rock is very solid (for Vantage).

The bolts are perfectly placed at good stances but if you are breaking into this grade they may seem far apart. The bolts are definitely more spaced than the other sport climbs in the area.

All in all, get on it!

one of the better sport lines at the crag, pretty heady by vantage standards, but any self respecting smith climber would call it over-bolted.(thats only partially hyperbole)
