Composite Image: Before I was even climbing I decided I would come back and climb it one Day. What an inspirational line!

Is the new anchor a bolted one, or just new fixed gear?

Solid finger locks after the first twenty feet. Watch the rock on the right side when lowering or rapping off, it's a bit chossy and you may knock someone out.
