1 out of 5 stars Agreed with the previous comment...

Not worth the hardware. Would be glad to see this disappear into a quality patch job. Anyone?

1 out of 5 stars should've been left a solo

Don't bother with this thing. The first bolt protects some smeary moves that are quite stout at the 5.9 grade. After that, it's up into the no fall zone and shitty rock for a while. Reaching the second bolt provides only a momentary relief, until you realize the bolt is sticking a full inch out of the rock. I'm guessing someone tried pulling it and didn't quite finish the job. If you insist on doing this route you'll want to clip the 3rd bolt of Legolas instead, which is about 8 feet to the right, and then traverse back left. The last bolt looked fine, but by that point I was over this route and just finished on Legolas. Considering that the bolts are a retro job and don't even link up any interesting features other than some chossy flakes, i vote it be properly yanked and the holes patched. There's no short supply of moderate slab climbing on Echo Rock. 0/5 stars
