Description 

I did not climb this route. All bolts looked so old and mangled that it would essentially be a free solo. Adding here for completeness.

The route is the third, fairly bland looking, short little route on the warmup pillar to the right of the good stuff at Sector Duke.

Feel free to add a more informed description if you've climbed it.

Location 

The third bolt line on the rightmost side of the shorter pedistal to the right of the main Duke slab. The moves to the first bolt climb up and into a deep wide scoop/fissure in the rock. Look for hardware that is rusted completely to shit.

Protection 

Quickdraws, too rusted to use, maybe a two bolt anchor. First bolt pounded flat against the wall; unusable.
