4 out of 5 stars Great route

Old leeper hangers protect the route but will hopefully be replaced soon. The bolts are hard to spot from below until you're almost on top of em. Most of the route felt 5.8ish with one reachy 5.9+ move. It looked like you could avoid the reachy move and climb down and around it. Weird white granite on this route in places. Really cool steep route, not much more sketchy than Labor of Love. Don't know why it doesn't get done more often, perhaps because of the leepers?
The anchor can be backed up if desired by placing small cams behind flakes to the left and above the bolts.

Edit: All bolts replaced by the ASCA on 9/13/09 with 1/2in x 2 3/4in stainless bolts includeing double ring rap hangers on the anchor.
