Comments: Just a warning: the first bolt for this route was spinning in the hole. Very unsafe. I climbed past it and just clipped into the second, but that first bolt is no longer a good piece of protection.

Comments: Climbed this one yesterday. Just a warning: beware of the big Petzl eyebolts at the top anchor (second one?). I got up there and found the eyebolts almost 50% worn through. I know it's a beginner route, but people need to learn to preserve some fixed gear.

Comments: Hey guys, just climbed this one again yesterday. Always a good route, along with previous advice be careful on those flakes. I definitely felt them shift a bit, pull down not out....

I climbed it up to the second set of anchors just above the unzipped set, the nice big glue-in eyebolts. Sweet anchors except the fact that they are worn almost 50% of the way through. I don't know what can be done about it, but those things are getting sketchy. Don't add to it by toproping through them.

Comments: I enjoyed the route, didn't really know what I was getting into, but Jimmie Dunn said to try it so I did. Great moves, and a fun deep section.

Comments: I really liked this route, it looked harder than it was. Also when i reached the anchors both the nuts on the bolts were so loose i could finger tighten them. The bolts seemed fine but the "hangers" are barely on there, i backed it up with the one cam i always have on me (yay green link) and tightened as much as I could with my fingers. Someone might want to take a wrench up there or something.
