A nice climb. Small pro in beginning. used size 4,8 and 6 stoppers then a #2 cam after overhang. It was a bit hard to place pro to protect the overhang. I wouldn't recommend it for your first trad lead.

I have led this with only hexes and a nut or two. Good route, good lead, a very intimidating roof until you find that giant Jesus jug.

Noob question but would it be in good etiquette to install two bolts to use as a bomber anchor at the top of this route? This would save on going to the top and building an anchor if someone just wanted to session this spot. If not I completely understand as it is someone else's route. I was also thinking the same for the Corner Crack.

In my opinion, no, it would not be okay to add anchors. There are lots of trees at the top, and convenience isn't the end all in climbing.

I'd agree with James. This is an established route that already sees plenty of use. The bar for convenience anchors on public land should be set higher than this.

Nice to see this kind of discourse rather than the usual bolting and subsequent chopping with 15 pages of blah blah in the forums about it.
