As of Saturday Jul 18 2015 one of the anchor bolts is loose. Didn't have a wrench to tighten it. If you plan on climbing this take a wrench with you.

It's not real clear from the Cragger how these two Comic Relief routes go, but I guess the Left line gets its 5.9 rating by continuing up through the V-slot to the higher anchors. With a little finesse, you can do the same with the Direct line; or with either route, you can just end at shuts under the roof.

the roof above this or the direct route seems likely to go at a grade higher than either of the comic routes listed.
