The leftmost climb, a decent first trad route.

It would be nice to put up some bolted anchors at the top of this climb and the 5.5 next to share with it as you have to go right quite a bit to get to the current Night Music anchors. If on a top rope you would take a swing for sure on this route if you blew off. Granted it's a 5.3 but having separate anchors would be nice and save the wear on the Night Music anchors. If someone out there has a bolt drill I'd be happy to supply the chains, quicklinks and hangers to put some up. Give me a shout.
