This is one of those lines which you have to force yourself to follow the bolts and not just walk up the much easier holds to the right, especially towards the end, where that anchor looks way up there, and you wonder why there are only 3 bolts.


The farthest right hand bolted route on the main wall. First bolt is 15' up.


3 bolts, bolted anchor

Contrived? If you have to force yourself not to seek the better holds and easier moves to the right then the line is contrived.
