It would seem from the tick list that Joe Finney has sent the route already. I am as curious as J-rock though as to whether the first bolt missing. Perhaps I just couldnt see it.

now I am told it has been handed off as a project to another person. i beleive it will go back to being red tagged. it has a first bolt, but is missing a second bolt after the ledge. it looks like it might need two bolts in there.

Yeah, Pigsteak is correct. Somebody else is going to finish bolting that route and do the red point.

Is this ever going to open up? Is there still a bolt missing?

Is this thing fully bolted and open?

Nope. Super long stick clip required from what I hear. People are climbing it that way.

Added another bolt on the lower section today. I went back and forth about adding two, but the spot where the new second would have been was just two moves away from the jug where you can clip the current second bolt. Should be ready to ride.

Nice moves with mostly positive holds. Plenty of bolts.

The stretch of rock between this line and the Pessimist is some of the highest quality stuff around

Anon, chill. What he posted was way more useful than your antagonizing comment. He is just updating an inaccurate description of an amazing route that deserves more traffic.
