Average Rating = 2.60/5 Running it out on Tuna and Chips

Even though only a 5.7 (R though), there were only 3 bolts in the first 30 feet or so and nothing there after! Couldn't place any good pro for the next 130' except to sling a horn!

At the belay station of the 5th pitch, I thought it would be fun to climb up this little roof for a pose. Don't worry, there is a ledge below.
