Went by there a year or so ago and noticed the opening move is harder now since a large feature broke off. I bouldered it out and it still goes, but now it's more like .10b.

Previous comment indicated balance moves higher up on dike...I don't remember those. I recall using the dike for handholds above the 2nd bolt and frictioning on the blank face.

Top anchors are #1 Camalot size if I remember right.

Added trivia for those who care about these things: This was the first route I bolted at Josh.
