Start on the flake/slab. After the no hands rest get through the fingery section to finish on jugs. This route would not be suitable for a top rope because of rope drag at the anchors. It is slightly overhung. When danger reared its ugly head he quickly turned his tail and fled.

I highly recommend cleaning this on top rope

So much rope drag on a 45 foot route that you can't top rope it?

Very fun climbing, despite some fragile rock! Not sure how it got the grade though, because it seemed easier than 4 other 10a's at the same wall. I think by "rope drag" people mean the rope running over the rock edge at the top. The last two bolts don't add much of anything, except for the rope wear. But even so, I don't think toproping this route would be any worse, in terms of the rope wear, than being lowered on this route. Someone has to get the draws at the end, one way or the other.

Yes the last two bolts add little to the climbing, but you can top it out and the view is great.

Climbed last weekend and this climb is still very chossy. Feet/hands were breaking constantly. There were some good jugs on the overhang that were way too sketchy for me to use, luckily there are plenty of other options. Also would have to agree that the anchor+final bolt add nothing but danger and rope drag over a razor edge. Coming over the edge at the top I grabbed something that resulted in launching a watermelon sized rock at my belayer. Basically the climb finishes in a sketchy choss scramble with your rope resting on a razer

Got on it this past weekend and most of the holds feel solid now, ledge is still sandy as hell though, don't think that will ever really clean up.
