FA climbed just to the right of the bolt line up better quality rock. The bolts were placed to the left in hopes of keeping folks from straying too far to the right on to easier ground. Clips are from good stances and shouldn't be reachy.

Should probably be upgraded to 5.9+ since the holds have apparently rounded out since the first ascent. Sigh . . . sandstone.
