This is a great route for beginning climbers, both for bouldering but also for basic TR training. Any concerns with adding well concealed bolts in the large rock face on the top left as you exit the route for TR and rappel training? There are options to tie, but they are either far to either side, or all the way back to the little sad oak tree (long rope in dirt). Thanks.

Please no bolts. This area is well suited for bouldering. You can see failed attempts at bolting this crack right at the top. Plus if you're creative rigging a directional for a TR naturally with slings and/or gear is easy. Most likely your hangers would be vandalized anyway.. Lead it on gear it's good.

Thanks Kelley. I saw the previous attempt, so I asked. :)
