I used, in order, the following: quickdraw (first bolt), #1 camalot w/ draw, 0.5 camalot w/ sling, quickdraw (second bolt), 0.4 camalot no draw, 0.3 camalot no draw, #3 BD microstopper (rp would work here) w/ draw, draw for fixed wire (#6 BD stopper) - back it up with a green alien and draw, and, finally a #10 BD stopper w/ draw. Amazing three star line on the Bluffs - right of Thundercrack. Clip bolt and perform a super cool lieback move by reaching up and pinching a fin over your head, pull right to stance, right again and up (difficult clip). Continue up overhanging rock to a pair of big horizontals - plug cams in and run it out up less-steep rock, and RP placement. Step right to pseudo-rest stance and good gear (fixed wire). Suss out the crux traverse (hint: stay low)... the holds all lean the wrong way, but a desparate move will get you to a big, positive hold. Continue right to ledge and place pro for your second, then step down and right to a huge hold and hanging belay from bolts. WHEW!!!

5 out of 5 stars Pretend you're Hot Henry

Hot route, cold day. Don't forget the seasons are reversed if you plan a climbing trip down here. Good gear, great exposure.
