Heady climb...the runout between the 1st and second bolts gives a slight pucker factor...

Coming back to this route a year after the first time I climbed it, I reallize now that it's not anything like the description. I followed the bolt line past 14 bolts and never found the two-bolt anchor that the online guide said was there. In fact, the anchor we did find (two bolts, chains) isn't shown in the guide, and was way off to the side of the route. If you climb this one, bring two ropes and lots of quickdraws. I retrieved a nut that had obviously been there for years and was used along with a bolt to rappel. Actually climbed it on the seventh.

This was a great route, and lots of fun to climb. It was the first route I've ever climbed on lead, so the crux was kinda shaky as I had to stretch for the second clip with a seemingly huge fall below me. :) I managed to onsight it though, which is pretty cool for me.
