Not sure of the exact bolt count, take 12 or so to be sure. if you get on this route please let me know how many. also if you get on this route and feel spunky grab my fixed static line, i will buy you a beer. this is a kick ass route, enjoy !

This route is also known as "Catching Zzzz's." Ask Tackett about it and he'll buy you a beer. 11c my shiny white ass.

The hardest of the slab routes here. Maybe the best, too.

This is Kick Ass! Just when you think you've passed the crux... you reach the real crux. Twice!

Very cool crux moves. Hard to onsite but 11c if you know the moves.

I cann't believe you guys bolted this thing. It is almost completely blank for 30 feet. It has got to be hard to find slabs this good. Genius!!!

Holy shit, my love-hate relationship of ~ one year with this thing finally paid off! Frikking fantastic climb, cool moves the whole way, well-bolted but still plenty scary, and it goes all the way to the top to finish with a stellar view! My fingers and my toes have never hurt soooo good! P.S. Krampus is full of shit.

Sorry to report I broke a key hold today. The matching pair of iron oxide ledges you could stand on 2-3 bolts above the hueco now only has the left hold. Getting through that move is MUCH harder now and you don't get a good recovery stance like before once you pull the move. Easily a grade harder now 12a/b.

I never tried it before but I don't think the breakage would change the grade, the iron pieces are still some of the more positive holds on the route. You can get a no hands before and after you grab them. The two bolts below felt like the crux to me
