Wait, what's PG13 about it if it's well bolted?

Another fun route from the Anderson clan. Got to climb it right after they finished it with them. Don't remember any PG13, just fun and safe. It has been a while though. Thanks Andersons!

Fantastic route! Very safe, no PG-13. Guidebook says gear to 1" to protect a small runout after the crux on p2. .75 Camalot was better. If you do p5(most rap off p4 anchors) all you need are small nuts for the seam you encounter high up. Maybe a few cams (I used .75-2) to build an anchor at the top. Moderate walk off to the right and your back at the base in no time.

Fantastic climb. Classic. Cruxes are short are very well protected. Only needed a few small nuts, small cam and a 0.75" cam.

Climb it to the top and walk off

I did this route on the last day of our Shuteye trip last week. It was as fun and well protected slab route. Previous comments are spot on on gear. P2 a BD .75 Cam wil protect in a pocket low on the flake. you are already through "the move" when you get it though. 2 60m ropes reached the ground from the P2 anchors. Thanks to the Anderson's for a fun route!
