Climb up face with 4 threads and then 3 old expansion bolts above the cave to the anchors. Expansion bolts are very rusted (at time of writing APR 2008) and at the crux above the cave! Not recommended until retro-bolted.

3 out of 5 stars a surprise crux and rusty bolts!

I had remembered wrong and thought this was a 6a. I thought that I was missing something as I went over the cave top, couldn't find a 6a move. Retreated to cave and back up twice before making the move. Problem was you had to commit yourself to a crux move at a very nasty rusty expansion bolt. This was going to be fun, I thought. I held on tight and moved past the rusty bolts to the anchor, not with much problem, a little awkward with the hands and feet over the cave, but I was ever mindful of those last 3 bolts all the way to the top should I fall.

The climb is a little interesting, but I don't recommend it until those bolts are replaced!
