|The crack section is shorter than described, and the first bolt could probably be stick clipped from the ledge. Crux is just after the bolt.|

Anyone who printed out this route's description before this week might compare it to the current version and notice that there is one more bolt on this route than there was when it was first put up.
The first ascent party added another bolt, up high, to eliminate the chance of a 25 foot, swinging fall in the last climbing to the anchor (where some of the rock was loose). What was a significant run-out at the end of the climb seemed out of character with the rest of the route.
Also while I was out there I checked out this abrupt comment by the poster above (Austin Donisan): "The crack section is shorter than described...."
By tape measure, from the ledge one stands on when starting the route, to the roof is 15 feet 2 inches (measured along the crack, of course).
