Bolts: 8 (report bad bolts/anchors)

Climb up to a ledge to clip the high first bolt then continue up a blunt arete to meet the crux after a couple of mud jugs. Grovel onto the face making use of sloping ledges which just don't feel as good as you want them to. Once you get your ass over the hump it's just fun climbing to the chains.

Nice route that gets great winter sun. I broke off one of the jugs at the fourth bolt but it didn't seem to change the grade.

Climbed it this past weekend and thought the climb was great, my buddy Brian however broke one of the good holds down low on the climb maybe between the second and third bolt. Don't necessarily think it makes the route any harder though.
