This is the bolted route just to the right of the impressive (huge) roof, this route features two 5.10 cruxes and stellar views from the two bolt anchor. The first crux comes right off the ground. Two ropes may be needed for rappell.

Two fun cruxes, I would use a 70m. Like it's been said, could use some new hardware overall. Poor bolt placements at some times too, if you fell your quickdraw would be loaded over the edge of some stuff.
60m rope doesn't quite make it. It's short like 3 feet. It was close enough that I could get down by grabbing the rope on the other end and lowering myself the last 3 feet without the ATC. This could be a classic climb if it wasn't for the horrible bolts on it. The second bolt is one of those old bolts that doesn't have a high strength rating. Another bolt spins (not good). And the first bolt on the second crux is barely out of reach from the comfortable ledge after the long run-out. I recommend putting another bolt before it, or you could find somewhere to place some pro. After the second crux, the only protection you have is 2 old pitons. The first one looks ok, but the second looks pretty sketchy!! The top anchors look kind of bad too, but they work. I would recommend changing them, but since I've never put in bolts nor do I have the equipment, I can't do it. Overall awesome climb. It would be a classic if it had better protection!
