3 out of 5 stars MISSING TOP BOLT

One of the top bolts has blown out, and there is only one there. Partner needed to leave some hardware on the next one down to ensure a safe descent. I went to 3rd bolt.

1 out of 5 stars Bad Anchors.

Climbed it about a month ago and it deserves it's name. The anchors at the top (of P1) are in hollow rock and I was told by a party that climbed it today that one of them is pulling out and it was terrifying lowering off them. Not a climb I plan on doing again unless the anchors are replaced.

3 out of 5 stars Alpinish for a Sport route

Fun climb, but some spots left me a little nervous while leading it. One of the top anchors is loose and they're behind a deep ledge so top roping is somewhat sketchy for rope drag. There are also some big holds at the top marked off b/c of cracking.

5 out of 5 stars My last climb of the day but my favorite by far

Gets a little scary at the top if this climb is hard for you. I really liked the line though.
