Description 

Climbs decent rock through the first four bolts then gets into somewhat scary terrain. The rock that the bolts are in seem fine but be careful as there seems to have been no cleaning during the route development. Much of what you might pull or stand on could come off.
Belayers should wear their helmet and be always aware of rocks coming down.

Location 

Left of Dog's Bollocks.

Protection 

Around 10 bolts to a rap hanger with a quick link and a normal hanger with a rap ring.

Who was the developer of this route?
Some consideration and attempts towards cleaning the rotten rock is crucial to make this climb safe.

Adding to the cleaning comment. Although I commend the work that it took to put up the route, I feel it's irresponsible of the route developer to leave the route open to the public in the condition that we found it in. After Will sent it, I followed due to the poor state that the line was in. I cleaned handful after handful of stone choss from the lead climbing zone along the bolt line of this route while rapping down. There's still a lot of loose rock up there that ought to be tested with a small pry or rubber mallet to ensure safety. Please remember, if you are going to develop a route on public land, it's for the climbing community, not your FA.
