2 out of 5 stars R/X!!!

This route has virtually no trad placements and only three loose old bolts. The first two bolts on the first pitch are 3/4 up the route and the bolt on the second pitch is 15 feet from the belay station. A fall just about anywhere on this route could easily result in death or severe injury for the leader.

4 out of 5 stars Chips Ahoy!

Super fun Route. Only did the first pitch. Roof looks good, but above it is more of the same from pitch one.
