Comments: When we climbed this we decided to build an anchor at the top of the ramp (bottom of the obvious crack on the left) on pitch 2, thereby dividing the climb into three pitches. I highly recommend this as it will save a ton of rope drag when you turn left into the crack. The crack will accept a wide range of cams at this point (maybe .5 to #3 or even a #4 camalots). Just remember to save some slings for the last anchor.

Comments: This route definitely needs more traffic to clean up. If not for the unreliability of the rock I'd recommend skipping the fifth bolt as the climbing there is super easy and clipping that bolt creates a ton of rope drag. I had a foothold break off at the lip and ended up with both feet cutting and hanging in the air for a minute. Worth doing if you've done everything else at the crag, but not a great route overall.

Comments: As of Sept 13th 2014: The nut on one of the anchor bolts is very loose. I was able to tighten it four or five turns by hand but did not have a wrench with me.

Comments: The last right fork before the parking area is now blocked by three big rocks. Park above the shooting pit and hike to the old parking area with the fire pit on the right.

Comments: The anchor on this route seems poorly placed to our group. It looks to be on an unstable chunk of rock that could go at any time. It held just fine. But I would be very cautious about climbing it again, unless the anchor gets moved to a safer location.
Fun route though.
