I thought it looked like a good warm up. My partner started to pull rope to lead it and I said you don't want to do that. He pulled through on top rope and said that's like a mountaineering lead. Curious about what may be the worst route and bolt job in the red?Treat yourself to a Hot Fudge Sunday. Looks like a treat, but mostly fudge. I actually have no idea if I FAd this but no info and no red tag.

I Bolted this and Sent it same day back in January of '16. It looked good from the ground and I remember it being a little awkward out of the hueco. I don't remember my exact thoughts on putting the bolt on the chicken-head but it seemed like a good idea at the time. How exactly do the carabiners run over edges on an overhung route?

Bad bolt job, on bad rock, and no cleaning to be seen. Bolt 3 is half an inch from a horizontal rock fissure And the rope side carabiner sits on the ledge beneath. Bolt 4 is in a bad spot, dogbone rubs on rock and rope side carabiner sits funny. Should be moved to the right.

Don't waste your time. Route is a pile of choss. Was mislead by who ever gave this 5 stars. 1 star is all it's worth

And by everyone you mean my partner and I? We were probably the first people on it since the FA based on the amount of sand and choss.
