4 out of 5 stars WTF?!?!

ok, so more runout scary climbing. the first pitch is fun, but has a traverse that is badly protected and scary. the 5.9 second pitch has lost some holds at the end of the traverse which makes it very hard and scary, especially because the "bolts" on the route are very, very bad. one is an old first ascent rusty star bolt, and the second is a nail, pounded into the rock....so ssketchy. the third pitch, if the bolts were replaced would be classic. the anchor bolts are really bad, worst on the route, and cannot be backed-up easily and every bolt on the route is from the first ascent and they are rusty and falling out. the climbing on this pitch is great, sandbagged but great climbing. this wouldn't be too bad if it was re-bolted. th rock quality on the second and fourth pitches is bad, but the first and third pitch rock quallity is varnished and bomber....just wish it took gear better.
