On the face to the right of Jolly Jugular. The crux is the delicate moves on the textured face on the bottom portion of the route. My partner and I broke off several small nubs, which made me thankful for the reasonably spaced bolts.

This route is a straightforward climb with well placed bolts close enough together to make it a good climb for beginning leaders.

The crux seems to be between bolts 1 and 2 - it's a little thin if you don't go too far left - once you hit the third bolt and those great flakes to the right, it's smooth sailing.

Three of the lead bolts were loose - tightened with nut tool which has wrenches to tighten bolts.

The left hand anchor bolt was very loose - also tightened.

I snugged the bolts up but they need to be torqued to the proper level.
