4 out of 5 stars fun

good climb for early trad leaders (comfortable in the grade of course) because of the supplementary bolts and piton as well as midway anchors to collect yourself at

4 out of 5 stars Tricky start

My partner had trouble at the beginning of the route, he backed out... so I led the whole route in one pitch. Fun climb though.

3 out of 5 stars bolts?

Why are there bolts on the bottom of this route?
I'm pretty sure the anchor near the roof is for TRing the arete to the left which goes around a 10c or so.
Fun route for sure.
