No Anchors! Only a bolt and a ring!

Anchor as of 5/30/2005 was a bolt with a couple of rings and a sling which had a knot placed as passive pro (basically a nut) in some questionable rock. Varied climbing makes the route quite interesting.

The first three bolts are pretty powerful climbing, then it turns into an interesting balancing act...overall not too bad, but not too great either...

Fun climb. Great start and a nervous little clip at the bolt just below the anchors make for an interesting climb.

really fun start (beta alert -- especially w/ a heel hook!) to so-so climbing to the top.

One of the most thoughtful tens I've done in the Red. Actually memorable and fun!
