This route would really benefit from a pair of bolts for the belay. The final topout looked mossy, covered in thorny bushes and dead branches, and slabby with no pro, and the "tree" that past parties had rapped from was a half-dead rhododendron! We backed it up with two other weak-looking trees for the rap, but it was not so cool. A generous soul with a bolt kit could turn this into a great line with a couple of bolts on the big face at the upper ledge would make both belaying and rapping a whole lot safer. Until then, climb at your own risk! Route was fun, and although the upper section was very wet from seepage, it wasn't bad because the flake stays dry. A rap station is all this needs!
