This is a fun route with the crux right off the deck. There is or used to be an old 1/4 inch bolt at the top but essentially you need to boulder up through the start before you can get in gear. Nice warm-up climb.

That hanger for that bolt near the top is gone and only ~4mm of bolt protrude. This section, and a lot of the climb, feels somewhat run out. The moves are easy however. I put a nut-wire on the protruding bold and it may have held a fall?
