This was put up as a mixed route with three bolts. The guidebook also suggests a selection of large stoppers and a #4 friend.

There are 5 or 6 bolts on this route now. No need for any gear. Fun route with good holds.

Yeah, I counted 6. The Handren guidebook mentions only 5 and that the crux is below the first bolt at 18'. It seems an additional bolt was added to protect that early bit.

What a lead! The bolts are more runout than your regular sport climbs and I'm not gonna lie, getting every clip was pretty dang scary. However, it is also an excellent climb with lots of great movement.

Getting to the 2nd clip is fine, but for the 3rd clip, you have to climb out to the left and with the runout, if you fall when you are by the 3rd bolt, you might hit the slab section if the belayer doesnt grab an armful of rope or so.
