1 out of 5 stars Rough start

Hard to read, bad friction, rock to ski down. Not the funnest climb in the world, but a good route to get hurt on. Crux at the start, just identifying hand and foot holds.

4 out of 5 stars No more manky bolts

I replaced the remaining 1/4" bolts on the top of the route with 1/2" stud bolts, and now the rap station sports two 1/2" bolts with chain and welded cold shut.

I'm thinking this route will be alot more popular now that it has decent bolts on it. It's also a great early season climb as it gets good sun to dry it off.

3 out of 5 stars Replaced first two bolts

I placed new 1/2" ss metolius bolts to replace to first two 1/4" rawl split shanks. The existing holes weren't used as the rock had cracks running thorugh the holes, though honestly the entire face is so fractured it's tought to find anything good to drill.

The first time I've tried climbing rock in freezing temps, it was 7F at the truck, but with face getting some sun it warmed right up. I figure in a few weeks if have a sunny day it'll be ripe of climbing.

I'll be replacing the higher bolts and anchors in the future.
