4 olts and anchors, some folks place pro, but the rock is crap until you're almost under the third bolt/roof.

4 out of 5 stars Just sweet

Love these routes, No Weld and Wintermute. Tough but doable for the average climber. Pumpy and taler than listed here. These routes have to be at least 70 to 80 feet tall.

3 out of 5 stars Fun mixed trad warmup

Use a BD .75 and then a #3 to protect the route and it becomes G rated.

4 out of 5 stars Runout to the 3rd bolt

Either have a strong head or take some gear with you on this one. The climbing to the 3rd bolt isn't that hard, but it will mess with your head. I took a #1 camelot with me (some dudes told me too), they were wrong, it was a little too big. I would say take either a 0.5 or a 0.75 cam with you.
