|I'm not sure this is the 'Bolted Route', but was the only set of bolts I could find up there on that side of the velcro wall. This route is graded too low in my opinion. I bailed at the 5th bolt on the first pitch, so whoever leads this next can have my carabiner, my gift to you. 'Small but abundant holds', more like 'tiny and just a few'. Don't be like me and let a low rating lure you in, play it safe and be prepared to bail if need be. This route might have been a 5.7+ in the past, but some of the rock flaked off as I tested for holds, so be warned. It felt like a sustained 5.8+ just leading to the crux, which is mostly friction footing with no holds just open grip/palming. The softer and stickier the shoe, the easier this route might be, just an opinion.|

Would a 65 meter rope be sufficient to rappel down the rap route?
Recently had to chop just less than 5m off my 70.
