We were given the bad advice of doing this in December. Head's up! It is NOT in the sun in the winter! First pitch was 5.8 R, pretty crumbly, had a hand and foot break at the same time pretty far from my last piece. Second Pitch was spooky and difficult over an old pin, felt like a no fall situation but we may have just been cranky and cold...
Minimal. Single rack. First pitch had two good bolts and the second pitch could use a new one. Broke holds on first pitch.

you were off route--
the route is in the sun in the fall not in the Spring-
hope you find the right route--its a beauty

Jon, after climbing the route today, I have to agree with Tom that you may not have climbed Children of the Sun. I counted nine bolts on the first pitch not including a rappel anchor that I passed and three on the second. Although Handren shows a pic with the traverse lower than where it is, his description is pretty close. I wrote a route description with all four pitches, the second and fourth being very memorable and also added some picks. Fun route. Thanks, Tom!
