Description:

Some choss n munge. Crux is between the 4th and 5th bolt. The last 3 bolts are hard to see since they have been hammered into the onion skin. Note: Need a 70 m rope.

2 out of 5 stars cross fingers nothing breaks

fun, agree with other comments there's some big stuff that can break. Used 65M rope worked out about perfect. Croft book has this as 5.8

3 out of 5 stars Fun route.

Still has a fair amount of choss and pebbles to send to the belayer, but not too bad. If I remember there's also a sizable flake to be careful of not pulling off. A 60m rope can be stretched to easily do the job, but knot the end and step up a couple feet to tie/clip in. I agree with the other posts that the bolts push you left a little more than is natural, but not too bad.
