Comments: "This is not a sport route"

My realization trying to clip the final bolt 20 feet above an old piton.

Comments: Putting a cam in here was more of a chore than anything, the climbing at the crack is easy even if you don't want to hand jam.

Comments: Don't fall clipping ... this rock is rough and sharp. I also thought the bolts were a little far from the 5.9 climbing on the arete. Wasn't a big fan.

Comments: As of 5/20/2012 the right anchor up top is not secure, the bolt can be pulled out by hand. Needs to be replaced.

Comments: Avoiding pulling on the fragile flakes made this a 5.9. There is a big flake about halfway up the size of a kitchen counter that felt really hollow. The sketchiness of this flake kinda ruined it for me.
