I think that this description is wrong and does not do the climb justice. AFAIK, Albatross is a pretty serious lead and does not start out on 3 Bolts. It goes straight through the roof to the left of the bolts with some nailing and marginal gear. The bolts are on "Rock or Cock", a 5.12 free line. Located just right of agro jobby. Climb up the fixed rope and belay from the ledge near the little cave. Start on the three bolts to the right of Agro jobby just above the cave. Then head left into the crack and the "scoop" of rock. Bring nuts, LAs, angles, and watch for the fixed head in the crack. A great aid line.

Good route. Popped a cam on an expanding loose little flake. It was my first aid lead! I would recommend it. It's nice having the bolts at the bottom. Going free at the top is hairy!
