No body has added a second bolt? :) I hand drilled that bolt. The name is from the blow tube that whistled when I cleaned the hole. Ask Kris why he ran the route so far.

There's a bomber nut placement right next to the single bolt.. I donated one but it got taken. It deserves another bolt. It's a great line. I know I hung a rope on it for several friends.

cool route... the nut at the anchor is back, hopefully it will stay that way.
