in between flexible flakes and slow children playing, high first bolt. the route tops out by pulling the roof-flakes past the chain -- which was originally a sling. if you don't top out, you haven't done the route. duh.

A nice, but very bold route. Like many of the routes along the river, this route would benefit greatly from a retro-bolting, restoring its original level of safety. Small TCUs and/or stoppers can be placed before the first and last bolts. However, a hard fall on either of those placements could easily blow the rock and result in probable injury.
Just got on this again recently and it is worth noting that this is NOT your average 5.9 "sport route." If you don't feel extremely confident leading 5.10 trad, don't bother trying to lead this.
