a fun climb, with great thin footwork and delicate sequences.
ends in a monstrous two glue-in eye-bolt anchor. there's also another glue-in eye-bolt about five feet above the anchor. i'm not sure of its purpose...maybe a piece of protection for the mini-pitch to the summit??

Really, really fun route! Crux seemed to be down low, but plenty of solid moves after.
2 glue ins on the top are for a more comfy belay if bringing your partner up. The larger ones on the edge are for the rap. Can rap straight to ground with a 70m (long, tie knots!) by heading straight back over the pitch 1 belay. If you have a 60m you will still hit the P1 anchors.
