  • Description 

    Approach via the first pitch of the Green/Red Dihedral, then head up past five bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

    Boxcar Willie gets the bomb in my book: I felt the bolts are placed poorly - both difficult clips and bad fall potential in some places. But moreover, the line is contrived, staying just left of a much more obvious weakness up this shield of rock.

    Oh, and then there's the fact that it's about a number grade sandbagged.

    Protection 

    Five bolts.

    CONDITION REPORT 
    Does anyone know how to contact Mike Clinton, the FA? Please contact me. The bolts are scheduled to be replaced at the Mickey Mouse Rebolt soon; does it make sense to reassess the exact location of a few bolts? There have been a few complaints about bolt locations.
