3 bolts on original route, 2 at start and one way up high and left through some runout danger (never seen this led).
Gulash added the 3rd bolt about 1990, making the bottom crux well-protected.
Most often climbed straight up after 3-bolt start toward 4 modern bolts and 5.11 roof, with Slater's Guide calling this Crankin'.
Variation start is right side of first 3 bolts at 5.11+.

|After several short, yanking falls over several days I got the crux and finished the route, hence the name, (Crank You, Thank You). Four bolts were enough. Thats all I remember, except that Pete Gulyash could boulder B1 in slow motion all day long, and that I could only stay on 5.11- for about 10 seconds before falling off.|
