Fun longer climb! They may have added a bolt recently near the anchors, because there was definitely 7 bolts when I climbed it yesterday. I wouldn't exactly say there are no cruxes because there are some interesting moves when you are leading it, but it's certainly an easy top rope for any confident beginner.

This was my first lead at exit 38. I second gregman on there being 7 bolts. Also, someone seems to have placed a bolt right above the anchor. I'm guessing someone really likes having their own clip in for a PAS? The climb is fun and exposed, with there not really being any difficult moves, just a little heady leading it.

this is a fun route, however suffers from poor bolt placement, be careful and maybe use long runners.
