|Ah...Two natural threads, one is the first pro just to the right of the old bolt remnant, the 2nd further up and easier to "find".|

I didn't think the gear was that great for this. The book calls Carpet Path "a good beginner lead" and says for this one "Gear is reasonable". I think both of those are overstated. So that either says something about me or about the book.
The first thread is high, and it sucks. That flake sounds terrible and I don't believe it would hold a fall. Luckily the next piece of gear is only another 5' further. I was able to sew this climb up, but with many questionable pieces in-between good placements. 9-pieces and 2-threads in 75' of climbing. Also I used up to (2) #2's. One (of these #2's) was a good placement, and another one was like a wet sock in a pile of dirt.
That being said I liked the climb. The top was wet, wasn't an issue though.
