4 out of 5 stars Remember the trad Luke...

So,... if you look up and see bolts and think hey, it's sport, like I did, you better be comfortable with 5.9R. Hey, it makes it miore fun though!

Bring some cams, and a #2 nut to hook on the first hangerless bolt.

The shiney anchor at the top is a nice sight to see after climbing past several smaller rusty hangers.

I highly recommend the version that starts at the base below the hangerless bolt. I later climbed the start up the hill to the right, which seemed 5.7 all the way...
