I gave this route the 5.8+ rating because the beginning (if you avoid the right crack holds) is the crux of the route...the rest is straightforward pocket pulling.


9 bolts, so 9 draws.

The bolting is terrible for the follower - looking at a pendulum into the slope to the right if you fall early (THE CRUX).

I give this route 1 star, a re-bolt might deserve a second one.

Liked the route. Using the crack to the right is quite natural and keeps everything in the 5.8 range.
