Good route, someone should bolt the rest of it so I don't have to bring gear to the Lode. Is someone going to finish the route to the right?

The boltless section can be protected with slings. Tough up top.

It would be really cool if there was one more bolt between the route on the right and this one, so you can start on the right and then pick your finish. It would become a 3/4 star route. I like the finish better than the top of the other two to the right.
