8 bolts on the top half of route. Trad < ~2" for the bottom section. Going without the trad pieces on the bottom section will lead to very long fall potential (~40').

Description:

Climb up crack system from ground in a slightly leftward direction until you reach the big pocket. Then work upward along the crack system to the first bolt. Crux seems to be the 6' section just before the first bolt. Top half eases up quite a bit.

4 out of 5 stars Start at the bottom

The MountainProject says to start below Green Hell (the center route on this face) and traverse to the crack. That would make the climb significantly easier than starting at the bottom of the crack (also would save having to place a couple pieces of pro). Still would need 2" pro to protect until the first bolt.

5 out of 5 stars Fun climb!

Lots of really good holds (they are nearly everywhere). Don't dawdle placing pro on the bottom half to save energy for the crux section just below the first bolt. The moves aren't all that hard (for the grade) if you aren't fatigued.
