The direct start (below and left of the first bolt) is steep, reachy and fun, but be forewarned that the large flake flexes. It is possible to avoid it by starting to right and climbing up and left to the first bolt.

Fun Route, but if you need more draws than gear, just bolt it up.

You may be right Daniel.

Pumpy, and despite popular belief it is totally doable for those who abstain from hand jamming.

pulling his roof was even more fun than bushwacked. too bad i suck at trad moves and cannot hand jam

I loved the route, but it felt more like a run out sport route then a mixed route.

Excellent route, but it is not a mixed route, it is a sport route that is missing one bolt, left the gear in the car for this one. Mixed routes are trad routes with 1 or 2 bolts not sport routes with 1 or 2 pieces of gear. Just my opinion.

Because if a 60 foot route has 3 bolts it's definitely a sport route... Routes that require trad gear should always be marked as Mixed so that people know it requires gear. The average sport climber isn't carrying around cams either.

Thanks for your super helpful words of wisdom anonymous poster who has never climbed the route. I have no problem with it being marked 'mixed' my point was why not just add another bolt to make it a safe sport route and actually make people want to climb it.
