    CONDITION REPORT 
    The first four bolts were replaced today. The second and third bolts were repositioned to be more easily clipped from both starts. As well the third bolt was also repositioned in such a way that it no longer causes a biner to be cross-loaded. The fourth bolt has a stripped hex head and wasn't able to be removed today and a re-positioned fourth bolt is now more in-line with the rope's line of travel. The rest of the route will be replaced in the near future with glue-ins.

    Is this route really 10a? I always thought it was 5.8 or 5.9 at most.

    Didn't really like this route... The climbing is not consistent, the ramp is kind of annoying. The rock above the ramp looks a lot cooler than it turned out to be. Maybe worth it if nothing else is available, but otherwise there are some better routes at the grade here.
