fairly good rock on the bolt line, follows a water streak.

Easy beginning with a couple steep moves up higher -- a bit looser rock than Donamatrix, but well protected.

Bolts at the belay are loose, wouldn't trust them to rap off or top rope.

Solid rock for the area, great climb! Didn't notice a problem with the rap bolts; I'll have to check more closely next time.

Positive incline makes this a very easy and not so interesting climb. Bolts are great and placed in good locations but everyone should wear a helmet on this! Many rocks some the size of my fist were falling from the climber's footholds and the rope hitting edges. Cleaning the route is a pain since the rope gets caught on lots of ledges the route has.
