the thanks and praise should actually go to virginia simpson (meetva), the rrgcc, and team muir. virginia put in all the effort and work, cleaned the route, bolted it, and belayed.. i was an innocent, if lucky, bystander. a fun route, though, for sure.

Don't climb this on high humidity days. The combination of sweat and sand make this route hard to stick to. Just a friendly warning.

Harder, but still very doable in the summer. Couple of unique moves on the route.

About the photo...Pretty sure this is Generosity(we didn't have a guide for them). Will is just being Will!

1st bolt may have problems. It appears the hole might be to wide. A couple of the other bolts are no where near flush, the bolt sleeves are exposed behind the hanger.

flying squirrel attack at the next to last bolt. little bastard is in the leafy ledge. good route though.

The team of bolters should go back and rebolt it. One of the bolts (3 or 4) is loose and flexing. The bolt has been tightened but still moves. And what JR said.

The 5th bolt is very loose -- bring a wrench. However, based on filp's comment, that may not be enough.
