5 out of 5 stars A route to remember

Be prepared for some runout sections. My roommate and I, started the route wrong because the guide book says you can see the first bolt on the first pitch from the ground. Well we found a bolt but we have no idea to what route. This start was extremely runout (X rating on 5.9+).
