The last (6th) bolt is very well hidden on a ramp about 15' up and slightly right after you top out above the crux. You can't see it till you peek over the edge and you need a slightly longer draw for it so the biner is not hanging on the edge. From this bolt, you can see the 2 bolt anchor another 12' above.
I clipped the 3rd bolt from the right, and it was not trivial to do, with a huge fall potential. I did not bring any gear, but my buddy said there was a crack to the right that could offer protection while clipping it. I thought getting past the 3rd bolt (again starting from the right - looking at Rolofson's guide, he shows an alternate way from the left which I did not try) was solid 10. Hint: keep moving/reaching left once you get the one good hold above where you clipped the 3rd bolt.
First ascent was Rick Leitner, 1997.

The third bolt is not hard to clip (approach it from the left), but it's in a really poor spot, and too high, and if you slipped there it could be disastrous.
The crux is tricky.

|Great route! Cool moves in the beginning and coolest moves up high on the crux. Thought it was better than Hambanger.|
