It's been said many times, but this "will" clean up to a really nice route...

Fun and unique route, like Russ said it will clean up well over time. Probably the best warmup in this zone if you don't want to get flash pumped on Tesseract.

The second or third bolt on this thing is loose. The hangar spins and the bolt is wiggling in the hole. 1/10 would not fall.

what does 1/10 mean? ill fix it this saturday. thanks for the heads up
Anonymous said on July 6th, 2016
If 1/10 would not fail, does that mean 90% of one bolt will fail, or does that mean that 5.4 bolts will fail on a 6 bolt route if one falls on every bolt? ...or maybe every 10th person will FALL on the route, in which case every 10th person will have a 90% chance of experiencing bolt failure if they fall only once. As the above risk becomes even more complicated when you throw in variability of both climbing difficulty and risk of falling on multiple failing bolts, I would simply recommend not falling and therefore not failing on this statistical nightmare. Haha

The route is still quite dirty, but would be a good warm up. Didn't notice anything questionable with any bolts.
