An aboslute classic - and way fun.Up easily, but with trepidation to the roof and boldly pull over it to gain a position on the wall above, straight up this using pockets and flakes to tricky moves (crux) and flaming forearms to finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

On 3/17/11 there are no bolts on the top, someone patched over them. There is a crack at the top where I put in a .75 green, #1 red, and #2 yellow, cams in and they were bomber. Lots of rope drag on this route even with extending it over the lip.

Wow - that's unfortunate, although it's possible to set up an anchor without bolts I think this is another good candidate for adding a good set of anchors.
