4 out of 5 stars Buzzard Breath

Imo the first bolt is set a little high, but you can walk out to it and clip it. Fun climb and becomes more like a 5.7 in between the 4th and 5th bolt, but hops right back up after that.

4 out of 5 stars loose bolt

Love this climb. You should be aware the right anchor bolt is starting to become loose. I don't know if it just needs a turn or two or if the hole is wallowed out. I forgot to try and tighten it after i went back to my truck.
