We traversed to the bolted anchors of Hippie Lip Balm, don't know if that is the intention or not. Traffic could turn this into a 4 star 5.7 and then it may be worthy of its own anchors. I thought it was a blast, my partner (a sporty) not so much.

Thought this was a bit of a dud. Lots of mud and junk on the lower ledge of this route, separated by jamming in a jagged crack, and a run of face moves on juggy ledges. The gear seemed a little tricky for my partner who's a new leader. Traversing over to the anchors on Hippie is easy, this doesn't need its own anchors.

Seemed relatively clean, decent route.
