Some loose holds. As a matter a fact, I broke a large plate sized hold the next year, 2013 at the first bolt, sending me onto that terribly sharp talus below. Cuts, bumps and a hairline fractured heel. Watch the rock that looks like glued on cement ; ). Luckily, it didn't affect the routes grade. It is however a little more clean.
To clear up a couple of things... this route, "The Nose" starts on the OUTSIDE of the hallway and ascends the left arete. It does NOT start inside the hallway. In fact, there is NO bolt line inside the hallway. The other "unknown 5.9" is really the Nose and this one doesn't really exist (except as a TR from the anchors). Clear as mud?
All this will be cleared up in the new guide coming out! If you have any info about FA's, contact me. Thanks.
This route doesn't see as much sun as the other routes. Climbed despite the rock being very wet (the top half was soaked). Agree with other comments about the loose hold between bolts 2&3. It's still there, so I'm guessing it's solid despite being iffy. Great warm up to a great day of limestone climbing!
A really fun climb. This is the one that is on the outside face of the arete and then wraps around on the last bolt and anchor. I talked to a few guys there who had set some of the routes and they called it "the nose." Good holds, some loose, but there was a good flow to this climb even for a short climber.
