4 out of 5 stars Fixed bad bolt

We climbed and fixed the bolt. Someone added bolts to Suicide Direct (route just to the right of this one) and their first one can be clipped to add another bolt to my route; just use a long sling.

First two bolts ground up and rapped the last ones. Dave Black recommended it, hence the name is from the water streak and him. easy and runout at top.
