This route was recently fully bolted. 5 bolts + anchors if memory serves me right.

You'll want 7 or 8 draws, the route goes up the left face of the dihedral until the roof, then you move slightly left and up for a couple more bolts until you hit the anchors. ~90ft. Really glad this got bolted, the thought of doing the lower section on gear is awful, lots of deceptively loose rock.

Don't really understand why this route was bolted, climbed it today and didn't clip any of the bolts and felt very secure. Its a great trad line and the gear is better than most lead you to believe. I will agree some of the rock is kind of questionable especially once you traverse onto face under the roof, however, its on easy terrain. Just test your hold and don't put gear in stupid places. If you know how to place good gear and inspect the rock in which your placing you'll be fine. Do yourself a favor and rack of for this line; clipping the bolts is a total copout on a nice trad line.

EDIT: I suppose the bolted line was a squeeze job of sorts.

First climbed this as a sport route and then trad. Both are fun and have a different feel. The sport route doesn't follow the crack so I don't see a problem having the face bolted and is a bit thin for the 5.7 rating. The dihedral crack and the traverse under the roof is easy to protect and easier to climb. The crack after the roof is not as vegetated as I expected. This could be a fun route to do mixed for someone new to placing gear.
