I did the FA before spending 4 hours cleaning the route. I didn't re-send it, but I think I got it clean enough. If not, I'm sure people won't be too shy to say so. Not on an internet forum! There is some rope drag at the roof, but I think the bolts are placed as well as they can be for this. I haven't tried longer slings under the roof to see if that helps.

looks like you bolted the start of the other cave route

If you are talking about the potential route (or alt start) referenced in the Starry Night comments, I think that is 15-20 feet left of the line I just bolted. This is a completely independent line.

2 stars as is IMO. Had the developer put permies on bolts 2-5 it might get traffic and clean up. As it stands without permies, you will have a horrendous time cleaning from top down due to rope drag. Fun climbing but needs some love.

This thing will be real cool once it cleans up a bit. Real steep for the grade. Needs permadraws. Good luck cleaning.

This route suffers from bad rock quality, (not the kind that cleans up.) At a minimum this needs a cleaning draw, extremely dangerous as is. Clean on top rope or leave your first draw clipped in and retrieve with stick clip.

You should not climb on this route.

The route is good, but the last couple of bolts ruin the climbing and then creates heinous rope drag. Could add a couple of stars by lowering the anchors to the first bolt after the steep stuff. There was a leaver biner on the vert that we appropriated and placed in the steep to serve as a cleaning biner.
