anchors replaced and started replacing some of the bolts. the bolts on the route had a different size wrench than i had with me. will be back up soon to finish and to remove the old bolt at the next to last clip.

Just a thought, when you move that bolt over the roof, you may want to move it down an inch or so??? No biggie if you don't but I'm not short or anything, but had trouble reaching it from the rest underneath...there was a bail link on it which I ended up clipping. Great route!

Definitely height dependent. The bolt thats hard to clip off the rest under the roof is really easy to clip off the giant jug 8" from it.

This route has it all--powerful, mentally challenging, with a balancy technical crux down low.

really bitchin classic. you could get f'ed up for sure if you fall on that first bolt on the steep section so heads up with the rope management there. Definitely worth going past that weird "sub-anchor" (before the arete on top) up to the chains too. Anyone climbed the cool crack above this route?

Along the lines of what Dustin said...Had I bolted it: seems like that bolt above the no hands could have been lowered and another added from the 2nd or 3rd (?) jug after the no hands. Last move to the clipping jug for the second bolt above the slab had my head going. Really incredible holds and movement though!

A word about the fall on the steep section...it's actually not as bad as it seems it would be. I caught several falls from various points on the steep section, and they were all good safe falls. Not saying it still doesn't give you a little rush, but I don't think it's going to land anyone in the hospital unless they have a completely incompetent belayer.

I fell right before the second bolt on the overhang and..........it was totally safe. It was the one spot that we felt would be a bad fall when we were checking out the route from the ground. All in all it is an awesome route. Looking forward to giving it another go in the future.

Definitely get your partner to hang the draws on this if you are short.
