Pretty sustained climbing the whole way. Also, it's a good distance between bolts 3 and 4. You would take a good 30 footer if you blew clipping the 4th bolt. Clean fall, but your belayer better be heads up when you are in this section. Nice lead by Andrew on this one.

The last bolt is pretty loose. It might need some TLC.

Found 2 Quickdraws left behind on bolts 2/3 or 3/4. Get in touch if you want them back.

Climb was sustained, slightly run out by queen creek standards and a bit pumpy at the top. Not sure why they spaced the last two bolts out the way they did, but the climbing to the last bolt is easy. Clip the last bolt and pull the final 5.8 moves to the anchor.
