only P1 on top rope
Great edging on tiny crimps and ledges, although some are a bit crumbly. For most of the route I was able to find obvious edges to use (small) but there were a couple sections that were pure friction. Fun TR if you clip the bolts as directionals, otherwise there's a pretty long swing after a slip.
I might consider this if there were about 3 more bolts. There are 2 and the anchors and that first one is quite high. I don't see why nearly every route at Stone seems to have been bolted with the ethic that "if you don't face ground fall yet it isn't needed". Maybe you are supposed to climb in motorcycle leathers, or perhaps some chaps? As always, have fun - but don't fall!
Onsight to the top, swinging leads with Chris. Awesome climbing. January or Febuary 2006.

I was the 2nd. Got to have your lead head, that first bolt is 30 feet up.
