Climbed this awesome route yesterday. It was great fun.
Be advised that there are currently two pairs of bolts (one old/manky, and one new/shiny, in each spot) at the P1 and P2 anchors, and the P2 anchor is located way left, at the right end of a huge sloping ledge system that arcs across the top of an equally huge overhung amphitheater below/left of the P1 belay. Don't be fooled by the topo in the NC Select guide, which makes this pitch look shorter and more verical than it really is.
Many thanks to all who contributed to the rebolting of this and so many other great routes at Stone!

|Beautiful climb. The first pitch is my favorite at Stone. Well protected nearly vertical crack and face at the bottom. Top gets a little spicy with a slab finish over gear in a flake that flexes enough to get your attention.|
