Fun area good climbing but the person who bolted these climbs didn't seem to put much thought into where the bolts were placed. I think he/she rapped down and just slammed them in every 8 or so feet without thinking of clipping stances or how the route should be climbed. Thanks for developing this area nonetheless.
