Fun. Not excessively undergraded... (unlike everything else). 3 bolts, anchor. Blue Metolius optional.

Anchor is currently 3 bolts and cord. A wise person would bring up some cord or webbing since the cord will rot at some point.

The anchor is now two bolts and chain. For toproping, one may clip the old 1/4" up and left if so desired.

I'm confused. The route has bolts on it and on this page it says it is a trad route

I'm confused as well -- on the page I'm looking at, it says "sport".

At any rate, having some bolts doesn't make it a sport route. The route description mentions some gear sizes, which I suppose, must supplement the bolts for the average leader of such a route.

You're welcome.

The listing now says 'trad' again. I hope to visit this crag sometime soon --I pass through often enough, it's about time I checked it out.
