4 out of 5 stars Great moderate

I agree, the bolts are unecessary. But a fun climb though, one of the best at McClellan.

4 out of 5 stars Bolts Questionable

I lead this onsight belayed by Kevin Klim, all on cams. The route is very protectable with a good cam placement in front of you for every move. I first thought the need for the bolts was that perhaps the flakes and edges were loose or weak. But that is not the case. I found solid cam placements everywhere I wanted to place a cam. I recommend to other climbers to dispense with the quickdraws and enjoy this modest challenge on gear--it is fun and fairly straightforward.

3 out of 5 stars Definetly delayed adolescence

This has a fun, yet akward start, lie back maneuvers towards the middle and moving out to the arrete at the top.
Be aware of some rock flaking.

4 out of 5 stars Soon to be classic

Overlook the fact that it's a bolted crack and enjoy the moves. An awkward move off the ground with great trances all the way up. Plenty of pro available if you want to pass on the bolts.
